    Work the whisk handle in stem stitch using three strands of turquoise embroidery thread. Work the whisk in running stitch using three strands of dark grey embroidery thread.

    Work the handle of the slotted spoon in stem stitch using three strands of crimson embroidery thread. Work the hole in the handle in back stitch using the same thread. Work the outline of the slotted spoon in stem stitch using three strands of purple embroidery thread. Using the same thread, work French knots to represent the spoon holes.
