These four examples are from my Tast 1
and these three are for the current Tast.
I used a section of a pattern from The Antique Pattern Library that Sharon pointed us to.
The first was stitched with perle 8 pink for Detached Chain and a white perle 8 straight stitch centre. Olive Stem stitch and Bullions and hand dyed green silk thread for Crossed Buttonhole
The next used hand dyed silk green thread, hand dyed cotton for the Satin stitched flower. The Crossed Buttonhole and Bullions – sorry I have forgotten the name of this variegated thread.
Lastly a funny green 2 strand DMC for the Crossed Buttonhole with DMC 2 strand green stem and the Oyster stitches were done with Perle 8.
French knots and Black Pistil stitches used single strands of DMC rayon.
I traced the first pattern and the others were hand drawn and therefore wonky.
NOTE:- I had been asked by Rose how I made the medallion example. I meant to add it but forgot.
I trapped a bead between two layers of fabric and worked the Crossed Buttonhole around and over this. Then laid the metal charm over the centrepiece and stitched that down with pearl beads and more Crossed Buttonhole, using Silf thread, which, sadly, is not made anymore.
The fan was stitched with one strand of DMC -6 strand -gold metallic thread
