stitch club :: 6/2024 :: peacock plant

happy june 2024! our newest pattern is this lovely lady, the peacock plant. (honestly the calatheas are my fussiest houseplants, but they're so striking that i usually forgive them.) i'm excited to stitch this one up!

i'm showing it here in a 6" hoop so you can see the correct placement - the bottom of the pot and the ege of the leaf on the right extend all the way up to the hoop - but i'm going to be using a 7" hoop for the stitching, so that i have some extra space around the design. once i'm done stitching, i'll frame it in a 6" hoop, as always.

now, to begin, i am starting simple and easy with back stitch outlines [2 strands] for all these dark green lines.
here we go!

and once the outline of each leaf is done, i'm going to be using brick stitch [2 strands] to fill in the shaded areas of the leaves, and also the stems and midribs:

stitch by stitch...

 

✨i'll be updating this post as i make more stitching progress... stay tuned! ✨
