Useful Stitch Practice
I thought that rather than practise my embroidery stitches on a bit of scrap fabric, I'd embroider the bodice of the dress I'm making for my granddaughter. I traced part of the pattern onto the bodice, experimented with different types of thread on a scrap and then began. I'm using one strand of pink Anchor stranded cotton to link in with pink flowers on the skirt. This doesn't qualify as Schwalm embroidery, since it's the wrong sort of material, wrong colours etc etc, but it'll work fine to become familiar with the stitches.
