I worked a little more of the Plas Teg Bellpull.
In this first photo I added three leaves in fly stitch, and outlined two petals in preparation for long-and-short stitch filling.
In the second photo, I finished the vine tendril and added some leaves.
All little things, but it is progress. Onwards! I am getting close to done with this project!
Hannah, you should consider putting a “pin it” button on your posts! I just pinned this and found numerous pins of your blog! One lady even has a caption on one as “Hardanger P-rn”!
I love what you did with fly stitch, especially since it was the first week challenge at Take A Stitch Tuesday. Just beautiful!
Just loving this bell pull. Have to keep stopping myself from picking one out. I still have a box of other projects I need to get started on.
Just wanted to ask what stitch and how many strands you used for the tendrils. I love how smooth and tight your stitches are. 🙂
It’s whipped stem stitch in 2 strands of floss.
You ought to see my box of projects. It’s ridiculous!
This bellpull is so lovely and I can’t wait to see the finished one.Your satin and blanket stitches are
so neat.What is that stitch which you’ve worked the leaf in the first image-the dark green one attached to the stems?.Looks like satin stitch to me , am I right?
The very dark green one at the left? Same as the dark green on the right in the second photo? It’s not satin stitch, it’s double running stitch! Turkish embroidery uses it all the time as a solid filling, and I think the result is just gorgeous (see my post about it at http://enbrouderie.com/2011/08/26/book-review-turkish-embroidery/). So I am starting to add it to my projects whenever I can.
I’d read the review ,but didn’t remember the stitch ! Thank you so much.It’s interesting and I like the texture.
That is beautiful. Wow you do a great job.
Great work, and good progress – well done!
This is so beautiful!!!! Can’t wait for you to finish.
