It’s all flowers in today’s update on the bellpull from the Mary Jane Collection. My blue flower is filling in and I love, love, love my yellow french knots.
And look, farther up on the vine I’ve made progress on the flower with the long and short stitch petal y’all loved so much. I’ve departed radically from the suggested stitching and colors at this point. I filled in the central space with Castelo Branco stitch, so it looks like a flower bud slowly opening.
Here is a closer look at the flower. I think I’ll make the pointy things green leaves, though I haven’t decided on a filling stitch.
Farther up on the vine, there are two more flowers I’ve been working on!
Hi Hannah 🙂
The blue and pink flowers look lovely together 🙂
glad you like it!
This is a beautiful piece and your work is fantastic!
Beautiful colors and stitching!
I love this Jacobean style.
You’ve been making good progress here. The Castelo Branco stitch is a good choice.
I really like that stitch. Portugal is where it’s at!
Your french knots are lovely!
I’d used 2 shades (1 strand each) and worked the japanese darning stitch in a project to fill some shape,and in another one(I think a yoke frock) I’d used one shade for the running stitch and a second shade for the vertical/slanting stitches of japanese darning stitch.I just wanted to share and I wish I’d taken a photograph of those projects:)
That sounds amazing! I need to mix colors more often – I’ve been mostly using solid colors in this project.
Years ago I made a bell pull much smaller than yours, and I gave it as a present to my mother in law. She love it,
Your work is so perfect and the combination of stitches and patterns is also great!
Have a nice day! and thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.
This is so beautiful! The blue flower is amazing!
