WIP Green Strips Embroidery

Friend Helen gave me a pack containing the background fabric, the fabric strips and beads, so I have been using it to embroider some of the TAST stitches on.
The TAST stitches include woven cross stitch, Vandyke stitch, raised chain band, woven zig zag chain stitch. Other stitches are running stitch, French knots and beading. So far. My stitching seems to get more untidy the older I get...

  3. If your stitches were any tidier than this, they'd look out of place. With rough edged strips of fabric your stitches are just right.
