WIP – Lavender

Another warts and all day and previous night.  This is just to show I Have been working between visitors etc.,   So far the flowers I’ve done may have looked hard to do but were not- the Lavender looked easy and is NOT.  I have to re-do the head as it’s too small to fit the oval that was drawn to scale.    You probably can’t see the gap at the flower top but it is there.

The base, on spare cloth, had rows of Wheatear, then different colour straight stitches over the upper part of wheatear, Then 6 strands of DMC, 2 wrap French Knots in 2 diagonal lines. and a 2 strand, 1 wrap on both sides.  Tomorrow I begin again.  I still have a wired leaf and small leaves to complete this.

  1. Looking good Maureen. :):×

  2. I think all stumpwork is tricky. Things that look impressively difficult are not and then the simple design is driving one nuts! You will make a beautiful lavender!

    • LOL – Trial and error and I’m going through lots of thread. I am determined to finish it.

  3. I don’t know, looks pretty good to me. I clicked to enlarge it as much as possible, and it looks like a pretty posey. Thanks for sharing these.
