This week we have GK’s staying for holidays so there isn’t much time for my needlework. I have only these two samples today.
I used a pink perle thread for the rectangle with a 2mm satin ribbon for the second half of the stitch. The ribbon needed to be untwisted often but sits beautifully.
The violet was stitched with the thick/thin fancy knitting yarn pictured. It has the feel and look of mohair and I was surprised how easily it sailed through the buttonhole bars. The inner part of the petals and the leaves are worked with DMC perle also and the centre with Caron thread..
