I am about to begin work on Alison’s CQ Round Robin block but before this I am posting the work of the previous embroideries. This is the first Round Robin Dianne and Jean have been in and are enjoying it. Dianne stitched the Rose vine with silk ribbon and Fly stitch stems. The ric-rac is alternately woven with a green and a lilac thread and French knots. The willow trunk is Chain stitched and leaves of Fly stitches. – I love trees. The seam above is Beaded Alternating Fly stitch. The next photo shows her spider and web. Alternating Up and Down Buttonhole with Detached Chains and Chain stitch supporting her cute bird in a cage. The seam to the right is Herringboned silk ribbon.
Jean’s first photo shows her beautiful Bullions and Detached Chains. The leaves are Fly stitched and the stem..Stem stitched. I love the use of the matching threads for the bow. Beads and side flowers of Straight stitch are lovely. The seam below is of beads and tiny Straight stitched leaves. The corner section has a horseshoe caught down with green Detached Chains and Detached Chain Cast-ons. Below is a seam of Beaded Chain stitch. To the right Beaded Alternating Fly stitch. French Knots, Detached chain, beads and a little heart. Lastly but not least is a heart with the Tiniest, finest, Detached Chain Cast-ons I’ve ever seen. I needed my magnifier to make sure what I saw, was what I thought the stitch to be. Straight stitched leaves and Fly stitch twigs and beads completed the heart..
