Embroidery Art

To create a piece of embroidery art, many single stitches in various colors are required to complete the picture. At the start of the craft, a single stitch looks awkward on the full canvas, but, referring to the pattern, every stitch is a contribution.

The patch of stitches in one color creates a definite image in the picture, whereas a small line in an alternate color offers depth to the picture. Whatever the stitch or color, it contributes to the full picture and when it is complete, an artist knows it’s a craft full of love due to the care placed in every stitch.

  1. I haven’t embroidered in years. I love the move from the single stitch looking ‘awkward on the full canvas’ to a ‘patch of stitches in one color’ and the full picture. Yes, embroidery is a craft of love!
