I finished all the embroidery on my La Cucina stitching. I am really pleased with it! Especially the colors:
I used a variety of stitches, the lettering is done in the Back Stitch:
The flower petals are Fishbone Stitch and the flower centers are the Jacobean Couching Stitch. The yellow swirls are Satin Stitches and French Knots . I will post again about how I am going to finish this little project now that the embroidery is done.
Now on to my newest wip - this olive branch border is also from La Cucina Italiana. Isn't this fabric beautiful? I can't wait to start stitching on it.
For my floss colors, I am thinking of this combination: I may add some different greens to give a shading effect. I love how much this fabric and these floss colors match these recipe cards too:
I think I will start stitching these olives first.
I will be sure to post pictures of my progress!
