Hanazume: Progress and Classmate


I haven’t had another class yet, but I decided to work the second plum flower on my own. I think I learned enough from working the first one in class. My teacher, Mary Alice, at Bluebonnet Studio, explained it fairly well. First you cover the shape in flat silk (above). Then you work the stamens (next picture!).


Finally, you add the pollen. It matches the first flower, so I’m happy 🙂


I thought y’all would also like to see what my more advanced classmate, Donna, is doing! She’s working on a design called Hiogi Fan. It’s a Phase 2/3 design from the Japanese Embroidery Center.


It has a lot of stitching superimposed on other stitching. Very geometric and very fancy!

  1. It looks very complex indeed – but how wonderful to have others in the class at more advanced stages, so you can see what is possible as you move beyond the basics!

    Hanazume is coming along nicely and lovely work from your classmate. Won’t be long before you’re on a similar piece 🙂
