1 Year of Stitching- Hoop 2

The base of the tree is made with Long and short stitch; and the center of this, Satin stitch overlaid with Herringbone stitch.

From the top to bottom as viewed here are Colonial knots,
4 rows of Satin threaded Chain (from the Anchor crewel work book)
2 rows of Buttonhole fans
Lace stitch or Hollie stitch continues upward from there.

 

 

Bottom right- Back stitch-top edge
Satin stitch in checkerboard design
Center vein -Chain, followed with Needlelace which I linked around the lower edge
The middle leaf has  Whipped Chain edges with Detached Chain filling.
The last here has a Chain stitch edge, Whipped Running stitch in the center vein and Bullions.

Stems throughout are all Whipped Chain.

 

. Top leaves

The top leaves – right leaf..Buttonhole edge one side and Cross stitch the other, with Whipped Wheels in the middle.
Center leaf – Cable Chain and Whipped Fly stitch vein
left leaf from left to right – Back stitch; Chain edge; Running stitch; Coral stitch vein; Straight stitches; French Knots (at the ends of the straight ones) and Chain/Back stitches to finish off.

Top to bottom
Left side. Twisted Chain Edge, Feather stitch centre

Detached Buttonhole Bar; Alternating Chain; Straight and Cross stitches around the Wheatsheaf
Back to Back Fly stitch; Rope Edge stitch

Threaded Running stitches; Cross stitch in diamond pattern. I used to think this was Algerian stitch. 😦

Top edge- Up and Down Buttonhole; Lower edge- Whipped Chain and Straight stitches with a Buttonhole Wheel centre.

last leaf – Whipped Chain edges and Couched Trellis center.
Almost every stitch I used can be found in Sharon’s  Stitch Dictionary

  1. Yum! Your whitework is drool-worthy!
    That is just beautiful work. 🙂

    • Gee, that’s a sweet compliment. Thank you very much.

  2. What a feast of stitches! A tree is the perfect stitch sampler. By working in only one colour it is easy to see the details of each stitch. This is really a nice way of learning and showcasing TAST and other stitch challenges.
    MORE please!

    • Thank you,Queenie. I do like trees and your suggestion would be a nice way to make a reference book of them. I’ll have to put that idea on a short list.

  3. Wonderful – I love it!
    Diane

    • I’m pleased you like it, Diane

  4. Love this whitework tree!

    • Annet, thank you.

  5. This is really lovely Maureen, it reminds me of Mountmellic work 🙂 x

  6. Hi Barbara, Thanks for the compliment and you’re right; they are Mountmelllck stitches I found in a book.

  7. oooooh – I love this one!!!! So many stitches involved too – fun to have your list and then search out the stitches in the piece.

    • MA, I need a list or I tend to forget the name as I’ve done so many over the years.

  8. Oh, my, that is so beautiful! I really like the whitework, and the variety of stitches makes it a piece of art.

    • Thanks Susan. I like whitework also
