Sunday Stitch School – lesson 75. Maidenhair Fern stitch

This is my school lesson, Maidenhair fern stitch.  I had thought it was another name for Feather stitch but now see it has 3 fronds rather than two.  It is very easy to stitch on Aida, with perle 8 cotton.
The name made me think of a Ginko leaf so I tried that using a single strand of DMC rayon.
My PC was down for a week, so I couldn’t find a picture of the Ginko leaf.  A bit ugly, so I tried again with the black one.
Goodness these photos are larger than I expected.
Again this is my version.

 

 

A bit of doodling with the last one made me think this would work for a Christmas tree.

The green threads were DMC rayon and the black, 2 strands of black DMC cotton.

The stitch lesson can be found at Queenie’s blog here,

Thank you Teacher.

  1. Says ‘Teacher’:
    Well done! I am so proud of my student who can think outside the box and make beautiful fillings with this stitch. I also think Maidenhair Stitch would make a very nice branch on a fir tree – perfect for Christmas.
    Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you Teacher, for the fine praise. I hope I can find more ideas for the stitch.

  2. I like the doodled ‘tree’ effect – would make great vines too I think. With French knot flowers perhaps?

    • That’s a good idea MA.
