Friday Revision Homework - Stitches: 206 - 210

 I like monochrome prints, you know, blue on blue, yellow on yellow, blue on blue. That is why I first coloured Sunbonnet Sue's clothes with wax crayons, set the wax with a hot iron and then embroidered on top of in the same colour as the crayon.

Sue is walking with heavy steps into a future of uncertainty ... Hopefully she will find solidarity, hope and peace along the way.

Other stitches used: 
Stem Stitch for the outlines and movement of skirt and scarf, 
Straight Stitch to add extra petals on the sunflower, 
a triple Star Filling Stitch for the centre of the flower.


  1. She’s beautifully stitched Queenie! 💛💙

  2. Nice use of all of these stitches. The world is in a sad place, especially Ukraine.

  3. I don't know where Sue is going. But I think Sue's heart is heading for the future.

  4. She is evolving isn't she?

  5. We are all with Sue in this. Hoping that the future turns out as well as we hope and better than we fear..

  6. So beautiful. Such a lot said in your stitching. The colors are most appropriate.
