Sunday Stitch School. No. 95

No. 95, Chemanthy stitch is another very easy stitch. Here I have done a half circle on Aida cloth with a cotton thread similar to a 2 ply wool

The only disappointment is my beginning and end as it is meant to be a full circle. I’ll be playing with this to see how to overcome the problem. Maybe I could begin the first stitch with the thread coming from the inner hole.

Here I have made a full circle on my needlebook cover.

WordPress is driving me Crazy since it has remodeled it’s layout. I am seriously thinking of moving to another program.

This Chemanthy circle was good to make also. Again the beginning/end, which is obvious, needs more thought to improve the appearance.
I sized the original photo to 110kb but a preview showed it 4 times the size now, I reduced the photo to 32kb and find this a perfect size for viewing.
Please pardon my grizzle over this frustration.
Grin… I’d much rather stitch.

The lesson for this stitch can be found here

  1. Don‘t worry about your grizzle (new word for me) – I could easily come into your chorus. I had problems with blogspot.com – couldn‘t see my uploaded pics – suddenly after some time it was working again. So rather wait. The stitch is very interesting – I will have to look it up. Have a good week and happy Easter.

    • Thank you Anneliese. I have added the link to the lesson now.

  2. This is such a pretty stitch Maureen – and I know what you mean about this website. I keep on getting lots of adverts popping up! 🙂 x 💕

    • It is a pretty stitch Barbara. I can see the half circle used as coral or other underwater shapes. Site changes I could do without. The ads are here too. 😦

  3. You can still use the classic editor – at least I can… I hate the new editor. Won’t use it.

  4. Thanks Diane. I had no choice for the classic editor and was presented with the ‘block’. I’ll see if I can find the classic one again. Such a rigmarole to find anything.

    • I am so thankful 😁 for my cyber friends to let me know new words, now and then RIGMAROLE – this is a word which fits very well into my vocabulary🎈

      • grin.. I’m happy to be helpful Anneliese.

  5. Oh, your half circles on Aida are awesome! Mine are a mess. I will have to try again!!!

    • Queenie this was my second effort. I meant to show the ‘before’ as well but had deleted it. I had an uneven amount of stitches.

  6. Such a beautiful stitch! I think it would be perfect for Dandelions. I have to go take a look at the directions for it and try it out myself. I’m always trying to do dandelions and never completely happy with them. =)

    As for WP, I don’t use their layouts. I do my own on the text tab. Now, if you are using the newer WP dashboard, I think that’s still there, but I refuse to upgrade to the new one when the old one is so much more intuitive for me. As long as I have that, I won’t ever change, but if they take it away, I’m probably done blogging completely.

  7. I’ve seen this stitch but didn’t know the name for it. Haven’t attempted doing it but I can see it used as small shrubs in a landscape. Hmmmm……pondering…..

  8. A lovely stitch.
    I believe it’s known as plaited wheel stitch in Western countries. My mother taught me this stitch and she remembers this name from some stitch book that she had come across many decades back but unfortunately she couldn’t recollect the name of the book.

    I think because it looks like Chrysanthemum it’s known as chemanthy stitch in southern India. In Tamil language chrysanthemum is called as Saamandi and in telugu language it’s called as chamunti. Interesting, isn’t it?

    • Hi Anita, I liked making this stitch. the various names are interesting.I haven’t yet found Plaited wheel stitch online yet.
