1 Years stitches – Days 9 – 12

Here are the last 4 days of embroidery.

Day 9 – I made paving stones with Four Sided stitch

Day 10 – I filled the pavers with Running stitch

Day 11 – I added Violas made with Buttonhole leaves and Detached Chain petals in DMC threads.

Day 12 –  Ribbon stitch  (sometimes called Japanese ribbon stitch) yellow flowers and French knot centers.

  1. How absolutely smart you are – Four Sided stitches for the paving stones!

    • and I was thinking of you while I made them. It is a versatile stitch.

  2. Love this Maureen. 🙂 ×

  3. This is coming along beautifully! I’m not familiar with the four sided stitch, so I’m checking out the link to see how it’s made.

  4. Quite, quite lovely. I’m interested in seeing how it builds. What makes you work in one area or another on a given day?

    • Susan, mostly my fingers choose for me. By that I mean they pick a thread/colour and that might inspire what to do with it.
      My idea was to fill the 12″ hoop into a mass of different stitches but the bird called; she needed a tree, then became clucky and the fingers decided to drop to a garden. The path may lead somewhere else….
