The piece on the right is my first little project. Feather stitch rings. A pink daisy, purple rose, and buds all in silk ribbon. I basted the silk squares to some silk chiffon (found in another bag) so that I could put the piece in a hoop.
Here's another one done in white perle cotton on blue. I love white on blue.
The "hills" are buttonhole stitch, the plants are feather stitch with several different threads including some silk ribbon.
|Trees in chain stitch|
This landscape is from a photograph that had mountains in the background (buttonhole stitch), a forest in the middle, and a winding road from front to back. The dark green trees are done in fishbone stitch. I'm not so sure I want to keep that clump on the left, it may have to go.
There will be some quilting content coming up soon. So much to do, so little time to do it all!
Enjoy the journey!
p.s. just looked at the preview of this page and see the layout is not what I'm seeing as I am writing this. I don't know how to fix that so I'm just going to post as is and just heave a sigh. ha ha
