I wrapped the thread around the needle twice to create a larger knot.
I don’t think three knots are necessary, so next time, I’ll just use one. Create the first leg of the “N” by using the Back Stitch. Create the second and third leg of the “N” by continuing to use the Back Stitch. As you can see, I had a little trouble with the third leg. Here’s a close-up. Sorry it’s a little blurry!
For some reason, my leaves get a wee bit larger as they go down! Here’s another close-up! This one is way more in focus than the last one! Continue using the Lazy Daisy stitch to add leaves to the last leg. And there you have it! A pretty, floral initial!
