1 Year’s stitches Days 37-40

Day 37.  I’ve added Up and Down Buttonhole stitch to the embroidery in variegated green
perle 8

Day 38.. here I made flowers of Whipped Wheels. The frame for the flower in dark perle 8 and whipped with 6 strands of variegated DMC.  The smaller flowers used 3 DMC threads for whipping.


Day 39.  Stem stitch combined the flowers.  2 DMC strands used here.

Day 40.    A small butterfly.
Bullions for body. Buttonhole for outside wings and Long and short stitch for the white sections.  All were stitched with a single Rajmahal art silk thread.  Antenna made with Pistil stitch. 2 strands of black DMC thread.

and here is a photo of the work to date.  The only bit missing is the cloud above the bird.  You may find a turtle down below..eyes peeled.

  1. Up and Down Buttonhole stitch is one of my favorites and the Whipped Wheels make good flowers. Your butterfly is nicely made up of a variety of stitches.

    • I agree the Up/Down Buttonhole is a good stitch I like how it can be made longer, shorter, wider too. I had not made Whipped wheels for a very long time.

  2. I love how you’re managing to incorporate all the stitches into the cohesive whole of your picture. That can’t be easy and must take a great deal of thought to accomplish.

    • Not much thought goes into what stitch to use MA. It really is happenstance.

  3. That is really developing into a nice scene. Do you have the whole thing in your head, or are you adding extemporaneously?

    • Susan, there’s not much up top; it’s more like ‘ this might work’. so far I haven’t undone anything.
