The second lesson of Why Fit In, the one and only Zecca adorable orange bird, has shipped!
This is a Mystery with a Twist so the lessons are approximately 3 months apart. Lots of time to comfortably keep up. Or not. Your call. 🙂
I think she is just so darn cute that you will want to stitch her all day long.
For this lesson, we focused on the background. I like to finish my backgrounds early on so that I can easily count across unstitched areas and not have to guess my way through stitched patterns.
I created a pattern of cascading leaves to fill my background. I had a great time stitching it. Because I realize that not everyone has my same level of stitching mojo I have included two other options in the instructions. Each one has a little less compensating drama.
We also stitched the branch in this lesson and give our girl legs and toes to hold on to the branch.
The next lesson is in 3 months. If you haven’t joined us on this adventure and would like to, you can sign up here or give us a call at 410.296.0405. We’ll do the rest.
This is definitely one of my most fun stitching projects ever!
