1 Year of stitches A group where you can do your own thing in stitches, work at your own pace and it’s free.
Sharon Boggon posted a stitch earlier in the week, called Raised Cretan stitch No 70. I found it very easy to do a tree trunk, using a fine variegated fancy thread for the Back stitched section and a pale blue crochet thread for the fill in section.
Day 35 – I added stitches to the above work. Branches of Coral stitch. I’ve added 3 leaves, which I found in my Anchor Crewelwork Embroidery Stitches book. (now there’s a mouthful)
The right leaf is done with Satin Threaded Chain stitch. The middle leaf is in Romanian stitch and the left leaf was created with Knotted Satin stitch.
I have corrected my error of the left and right leaves. they are now correct.
Sorry that I have no link for these stitches.
The Knotted satin stitch gives a wonderful raised edge to the work.
Here is my work from day one to today. It is on a tilt so I could get all the stitches in the photo. I hope they are viewable.
