WIP – Dill finished

Herb- Dill

Herb- Dill

This is the 7th project of 19 in Sachiko Morimoto’s stumpwork book and was so easy.

There are also 8 projects where flowers are made into usable items that can be used as gifts.

The only parts I had to do at this point were the French Knot flowers and the assembly of the thin wired leaf.

I had to use a little drop of glue at the wire tips and wind 2 strands of thread around the length.

See?  Easy!

 

 

Dill – Anethum graveolens.   A herb used in many ways.  In cooking in soups; with meat or fish.   The list is varied and long.. it’s even supposed to be good for indigestion

  1. This is so pretty Maureen 🙂 ×

    • Thank you Barbara. 🙂

  2. Ah, dill, the most important herb for a Swede! You have made a fantastic example of this delicious herb. This particular type, krondill, is used when cooking crayfish. I can smell the fragrance!

    • Thank you Queenie. Good instructions are a great help to getting an embroidery looking good. It’s not just a pretty book to look at.

      Well I can’t smell the Dill with the crayfish but I sure can imagine the taste of the crayfish. It must be 30+ years since we ate crayfish. Far too expensive for not much more than baby sized ones.

  3. You got a lot of depth with the colors of the French knots. I like it!

  4. Thanks Diane. There was an option to add random second colour. I wasn’t sure at first but am happy with the result.

  5. Lovely! ❤ I need to get to work on my stumpwork project…

    • Please do. I’ve become a Follower of your work

  6. You left out the part about making 500 French knots! LOL Beautiful, really lovely. I like the two-color subtle variation in the thread. How is the wired leaf attached to the piece?

  7. Susan, I use a very thick needle and poke a hole to thread the wire through, then stitch the wire underneath the cloth and bend the leaf back over this.

  8. I really like this one! Makes me wish I was still making pickles and could smell that wonderful dill as I filled the jars.

    • Mmm! Yes the spicy smell when pickling is tantalizing.
