Need more picnic blankets for summer? Have a look at this stunning embroidery one by lovelyindeed.com!

Be sure you make a mark dark enough to remain visible. Thread your needle with the yarn, tying a knot at the end. Begin embroidering at the end of your first word, using a split stitch. If you run out of yarn, tie a hidden knot behind the blanket and thread your needle with a new piece. Knot it to your old piece and continue your split stitch. Keep reading in the source.
