I thought people might want to see a floral feature I have used on one of my blocks. It is made up of both textured embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery. The Silk ribbon flowers are created using 7 mm Silk ribbon using Japanese Ribbon stitch. I don’t have directions to work this stitch online. It is on my to do list but you can find directions for Ribbon Stitch here. The centres are French knots with straight stitch radiating from the middle.
The pink textured flowers are made of a hand dyed thread which is the same weight as DMC pearl 5. In a daisy like formation I worked Bullion Knots which have been surrounded with a detached chain stitch. (I have some tips for working bullion stitch here)
I don’t have my regular weekly round up this morning as I am away for the weekend at the Kangaroo valley folk festival. This post was pre-written and I will approve any comments that are left when I get back.
