Work In Progress Wednesday - November 26

This week I started stitching the background of my Phoenix. First I tried a few pulled thread stitches on my doodle cloth. I decided to use coil stitch again, it’s the stitch in the bottom left corner.
Here I stitched coil stitch at the top of the left wing, the thread is a variegated cotton a broder #25.
And I stitched coil stitch in perle 12 at the right side of the head.
Work In Progress Wednesday is a support group to encourage people to complete languishing projects, Works In Slow Progress or UFO’s.

  3. Good idea to have a doodle cloth to test the stitches on. Oh, I feel so tempted to do some pulled work after seeing yours - the Coil Stitch is simple but elegant.

    1. Thank you. I'm not going to add more coil stitches, this phoenix will be surrounded by other stitches too!
