Amazon Books

To go along with embroidery video tutorial for drizzle stitch, I thought you might be interested in a few photos of the drizzle stitch “in action.”

This is a little project I’m working on which may very well develop into a Christmas present. On it, there’s a Grandma whose hair is worked in drizzle stitch.
