Wormwood Embroidery – February Phenology

When I set out to make a pattern for this month’s phenology wheel section, I wanted to stitch something native to my area. A quick google search showed me some wormwood plants that I really liked the leaves on. Then, while on a walk, I spotted what appeared to be wormwood! It was perfect! Unfortunately, what I snapped a picture of here was actually poppy leaves, which I just found out a day ago when one bloomed. OOPS!

Anyway, my embroidery was actually based off a photo on the internet, so I’m just gonna go with it and pretend that I actually saw the wormwood that I found on the internet. I’m planning on stitching a poppy next month, so I don’t want them to be the same.

I just used a satin stitch and two strands of floss for the entire thing. Not the most exciting, but it still turned out pretty.
