tast2 -week 2-Knotted Loop stitch

this week’s play with a stitch

I used DMC stranded cotton for the bullrushes, perle 5 for grasses and stems, a thick perle for clouds and aBroder blue for the water.

The dragonfly is made from metallic thread and Ginnie Thompson flower thread.

I found it difficult to mirror image the wings and even turning it 180 degrees didn’t help.

TAST WEEK 1

This is the Diamond stitch from last week.. where I used perle threads.
