Plas Teg Bellpull Flowers

There’s another blue flower on the bellpull, and I decided to replace the long-and-short filling with Castelo Branco stitch on this flower too.

Then I replaced long-and-short stitch filling for this leaf with split stitch. I like the texture. It took a while to fill the leaf, though.

I started work on a new section at the top of the bellpull. I like the long and short stitch at the bottom right. It’s not that I’m trying to avoid long-and-short stitch! It’s beautiful for shading. But I wanted to try out some other filling stitches.

I have developed a new appreciation for chain stitch during this project. I love this leaf.

    You can use other line stitches in the same way, don’t forget, and even use blanket stitch as a filling stitch… Don’t apologise for creating your own variations – that’s half the fun!

    I love that shade of green for the split stitch leaf, and the texture, too. I may have missed it in a previous post, but could you show what the whole thing will look like in your next update?
    Thanks,
