Beginner Whitework Ornament

The Project:

A small whitework sampler designed by Teresa Wentzler that can be made into an ornament. It's mainly a tool for learning how to do specialty stitches, but I already had all of the materials in my embroidery stash and thought I'd give it a try.

Whitework is an embroidery technique in which the stitching is the same color as
the foundation fabric.

The overall (uncompleted) design:
