This embroidery I did some couple of years back. Both mine and DHs name start in S and so I embroidered this S & S in a heart shape.
The Heart is stem stitched and the gap between circle and heart is filled with seed stitches.
Seed stitches are nothing but straight stitches in random direction. Seed stitching is simple but time-consuming.
The human brain is so tuned to follow and find pattern in whatever it does , so if you want to stitch or do anything at random, an extra effort is required to do so.
Have a look at the pics and post your comments.
