A Year’s stitches

I decided those yellow flowers must have been Jasmine.  I’ve added Feather and Chain stitch as the vine.
Also I added more Detached Chain leaves and French Knot Wisteria blooms.

 

 

Another addition is the green rayon threads  for leaves to lift the dullness of the flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Foxgloves.  Green DMC for the Satin (really?) stitched leaves..not too neat.
I used DMC for the buds and top flowers and Edmar Lola for the larger Buttonhole blooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The shrub on the left was made with 6 strands of DMC using the Knotted Cable Chain stitch and I’ve begun another rose bush with Lazy Daisy leaves

  6. Such pretty flowers – makes me want to smell them. Out of curiosity – did you paint the background fabric??
