Color Way 4 Foxie Stitch Along
I have chosen the colour Sweet Pea from my stash of Cottage Garden Threads.
The leaves under the foxes' snout are done in Stem Stitch - outlines and spine only. Then some backstitches are added to fill them in.
French knots are done this time by looping the thread three times around the needle so as to create a slightly bigger French Knot.
The very tiny leaves in three places around the larger leaves, I did in only a single thread so that they wouldnt look too bulky.
The other two parts to be added in this colour are the leaves on his foreleg and the stem of leaves to the left of the green leaves. The stitches used are a mix of Stem Stitch and Backstitch.
