Originally, I created this pattern with the feather stitch in mind. The feather stitch immediately made me think of all the beautifully colored coral in a gorgeous underwater scene. This design is detailed but the stitches are simple. It took me about 8 hours total to complete. Hand sewing is a relaxing form of therapy, great to indulge in when the rest of the world around you is going crazy. When you are finished with this project you will have a lovely keepsake great for hanging on the wall. The hoop makes a perfect frame! Slide some ribbon through the hardware at the top or just hang it on a nail. Prop it in a tiny easel to display your hard earned masterpiece! This is a fantastic project for people who have some beginner knowledge of embroidery but can be enjoyed by anyone. This project has been completed in backstitch, satin stitch, straight stitch, detached chain stitch, french knots, split stitch, feather stitch and stem stitch but feel free to add your own twists to it by picking your own color palette and adding different stitches. Go crazy and add extra dots, dashes or even beads!
