Arrowhead Stitch



Well, here we go starting at the beginning of the Alphabet.   This little stitch is a cutie.  I am finding it a little tricky though to get the spacing correct.   My pictures will tell the story.  So consequently this one will be getting a wee bit more practice than the other two shared so far.   I would prefer to call it a zig zag stitch because that is what it reminds me of.    Always remember that us lefties work from right to left.
 







Remember the little lady I was working on last week, well she is finally finished and I am quite happy with the way she turned out. Now on to the next block in the quilt, which is a gorgeous bonnet.
I will share pics of that as I go along too. 




Hints and Tips:
When preparing your fabric piece for embroidery, after you have ironed on the light interfacing, it is a good idea to lightly baste around the edges to stop your work from fraying.
