This week’s Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge stitch is one I have used many times on my dolls’ faces. It’s been a while since I’ve stitched a face in satin stitch, but I figured now was a good time to make a new one. It has taken me nearly the whole week to get it done. The weather was beautiful this afternoon, so I brought my things outside and stitched on the patio swing.
She was inspired by the same face as two of the running stitch faces I had already stitched. I was trying for a mosaic look with those two and thought I could do a different mosaic look with satin stitch. I drew up this preliminary sketch a couple of years ago.
