Work in Progress – Viola

A beginning of the viola.  4 DMC strands Chain stitched and  whipped on the main stem and 2 threads on the smaller stem . The bud was built up with Split stitch and Satin stitch.  The lower leaves are Stem stitched.  The second photo shows the bud with Satin stitches on the outer sides.  I’ve a family task to do now so I’ll be back with more of this stumpwork soon.

  1. Your work is so neat.

  2. It hasn’t always been, Queenie. I’m trying to be more aware of needle/thread placement now.

  3. Love the now-heart shape – which will be different in a few days I assume.

  4. I never noticed they have those little leaves at the bottom! Of course, they don’t abound here, but I do see them in east Tennessee. Very pretty stems, so evenly stitched. I liked seeing how you did the bud in two parts.

    • Susan after the padding, the bud has the central part Satin stitched in white and the outer sections in the green.

  5. the stitches are lovely and neat. a beautiful piece.

    • Thank you jizee for the visit and kind comment.
