After finishing my arctic hare embroidery I soon started a new project and (as you can see) it's again a fairly detailed piece. It's challenging and I already had to take out a lot of small stitches because my first take on the pearl necklace wasn't very successful. In...

The Zig Zag Long Stemmed Chain Stitch is a long name for an easy stitch. I used this stitch in my 'How does your garden grow' sampler pattern to stitch Tarragon, at least I think it looks somewhat like Tarragon. :)
