WIP – Viola finished

ViolaThere have been lots of interruptions while working this flower but I finally finished the Viola.

Top petals,  Split stitch edging.  Petal filling, Long and short and Straight stitches with single DMC threads.

The three wired petals were worked the same way with single threads, then edges were buttonholed.

The wired and padded leaves at the base were stitched with Satin, Stem and Straight stitches using 2 strands of DMC.      The central French knot was done with 4 strands of thread.

The bud method and stems were blogged in an earlier post.

This is the 10th flower so far from Sachiko Morimoto’s Stumpwork book.  I’m still enjoying the embroideries.  Nine to go.

  1. This turned out gorgeous! Beautiful work.

    • Thank you, Renee.

  2. A very sweet flower. Over halfway done with your personal challenge! At this point, are there any left that you are dreading to start? You have so much experience with the techniques by now, I don’t imagine any of those left can be above your pay grade. 🙂

    • I think the hardest are done with but I’ll need care with the corded buttonhole, as tension and I don’t always coincide.

  3. Of all the stumpwork flowers you have made, I think this is the loveliest. It is so sweet I can smell the fragrance!
    Keep up the good work with the other nine.

    • Thanks Queenie for the kind words. I appreciate your encouragement.

  4. A beautiful finished flower. 19 seems an odd number to put together. I look forward to seeing that setting.

    • Hi Susan. 19 is the number of flowers/herbs but there are a few projects as well.
