TAST Fly Stitch

Last night I started to work on this week's challenge, a little after 9pm and as I wasn't tired, kept working until I finished the whole piece, at 3.05am. LOL I didn't even sleep-in this morning.

There are four pictures, the last being the whole view.

I once saw work done entirely with one only stitch. These works were in the UK mag, Stitch with the Embroiderer's Guild. Ever since then I have wanted to try, but never made time. Sharon's TAST was the perfect reason to start.

I forgot to add some brown beads to represent the conifer cones. Some flowers are perfect for fly-stitch.
I certainly need more practise with my rocks in the garden part.

The background material was a left-over mistake from my Insect Project and was very handy for this one.

There are only 3 stitches not Fly stitch and they are at the top of each cerise flower stem.

Maureen, what a lovely landscape did you make, and that only with 1 stitch, think it's amazing! Did you paint the background fabric before you started stitching?
