Plas Teg Bellpull: Berries


These purple things supposedly represent berries, though I think they look like flowers. They’re in a variant of spider-web stitch, which can make some really interesting textures. I finished off the blue flower in the corner too.  At this point the bell pull has only three flower clusters (two of them already started) and the mound at the base left before I’m finally done! Here is a closer look at the berries – I think you can see my stitching improving on each berry.

    I think they look great and are beautifully done regardless what they are supposed to be. Amazing work.

    You’re doing great, I agree, they look more like flowers, but who cares what they are supposed to be, they are very nicely done.

  3. The stitch creates an interesting texture, and yes, I think each is better than the last.

    Looking good, Hannah! Re: berries improvement – yes, they get better. And I think it must be satisfying for you to see your improvement as you progress.

    Spider-web stitch is one of my favorites! It’s fun to do and it’s so textural. Your berries are beautiful. 🙂

    I like the purple “things.” The blue flower is gorgeous. Will be nice to see the whole! Don’t forget to sign up for the Trish Burr give away at Mary Corbet’s! That project looks to be right up your alley!

      I appreciate the tipoff! But I already have her birds book, and I think if I start a Trish Burr project it will be one of those. I just love those birds. Good luck in the giveaway!
