The second sample, this time with the correct tool. It really does make a difference, much easier to work:
This sample (the stitched area) measures about 4″ x 6″. I think I might make it into some sort of wallet or cover to keep the hooks and holder in. The hooks are really tiny and could easily get lost or broken if not protected.
The flower is worked in Stef Francis six-ply cotton and Oliver Twists hand-quilting thread; the leaves in Oliver Twists space-dyed green quilting thread. It’s about the same thickness (maybe slightly finer) than standard buttonhole or top-stitching thread. I filled in the leaf outlines with simple embroidery stitches.
