"Tree Of Stitches" Part 9

I finished part 9 of the "Tree Of Stitches" SAL on "The Stitch Specialists" yahoo group. I still adore this piece and have learned a few stitches I didn't know about.

This last section could be stitched in either the Norwich Stitch or the Woven Stitch. Well, I couldn't decide which stitch I liked best; so I stitched the left half using the Norwich Stitch and "Burnished Leaves" and the right half using the Woven Stitch and "Winter Sage". I have to say that after doing both stitches, that the Norwich Stitch is far easier as you don't have to weave the thread over and under as with the Woven Stitch, but I loved the learning experience.

I had someone ask what type of threads I'm using?
They are threads that I have hand-dyed myself.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind, I appreciate each and every one.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
