I love when readers send me pictures of their embroidery projects and I'm always happy to share, especially when it's something a bit more creative than the usual tea towel. Like Sarah's solstice skirt.
She designed the skirt herself in bright orange linen and then embellished it with rows of interlaced band and palestrina stitches in purple and pink. The flowers are done in a combination of satin, woven filling, chain, back, and raised herringbone stitches—all of which she learned from my Stitch School posts. And I think she deserves an "A+" for this project!
