1 year’s stitches Days 23-25

1 Year’s stitches Day 23.  this is Cloud Filling in 2 pale colours.  May look odd but I kept it small and wriggly to look like a cloud.  lol.  I can do the stitch properly.

 

 

 

 

 

Day 24  is the edge embroidery of Satin stitch in peak form

Day 25, I used Up and Down Buttonhole for all stems in 2 strands of variegated Cottage Garden thread and 2 strands of DMC khaki colour.  I topped them with silk Ribbon stitch buds.

Lost count of the days and thought I’d done today’s stitch but what I did, was the TAST no. 69 stitch – Magic Chain, that does not belong here.  One more post to do and then I’ll work a stitch for today.

Pintangle Stitch Dictionary is a must for those who enjoy learning new and brushing up on old stitches.

  1. A cloud filled with Cloud Filling! You are so clever, Maureen. also in the way you have used the Up and Down Buttonhole stitch for the stems.

    • Thank you. The Up/down buttonhole is rather versatile.

  2. I’m doing this challenge too so am grateful to the link to the pintangle webpage

    • Links are a blessing sometimes and Pintangle is one of them.
      Enjoy TAST, it’s great fun as well as a learning of stitches.

  3. So appropriate to use cloud filling stitch to make clouds!

    • Guess the stitch is well named 🙂

  4. The floral part is so pretty and appealing. I like the cloud stitch in a cloud!

    • Thanks for liking the work, Susan.
