embroidery lots of examples

complex stitches made up of smaller parts. Try sewing a decorative stitch withe the zigzag machine, then further embellishing with hand embroidery. I may have to try this some daywhen I get really adventurous-hope I can learn to do these stitches.

Basque Stitch is very similar to the Palestrina Stitch. Are you new to embroidery? I have never found better tutorials than Sarah has posted! Grab some DMC and get going!
