WOW !!!!!!!!!! That turquoise fabric with the sheen of the flowers and the bling make the design jump off the fabric. :mexicanwave: :mexicanwave:

OK, now it's just cuz I'm a pal and can point this out: either the holding stitches for the fabric need to be smaller or the surrounding stitch needs to be heavier to reliably cover them. I favour the latter, of course, knowing how careful and clever you are with a needle. Of course, the idea, colour and bling are great fun! :wip:

You're absolutely right, Serinde - that was my learning point from this one. The holding stitches couldn't really be smaller without being ineffective, so either I match it to the printed fabric rather than the ground fabric, or Ido the heavy chain stitch in perle #5 instead of #8. I have the materials ready for another bauble! (And I'll have to as I've been asked whether I could do this for the next Buiding Fund workshops.... I haven't even finished this run yet :-) !)

These are all such imaginative designs Mabel but just love the Christmas trees, so different to normal ones. Well done, a great show of your versatility :tizzy: :whoop: :mexicanwave: :mexicanwave:

Finally making a start on stitching the Tree of Life, even though for now they will be mostly doodles and separate leaves to try out stitches. But at least it involves a needle and threads :lol:

I'm writing about the various stitch doodles on FoF, on and off, but here is the first proper leaf - well, the set-up for it anyway. Tracing on calico and crewel wools ready, and the stitches will be up-and-down buttonhole on the outside and French knots on the inside. I've got a fair few things on this weekend (cooking at the Men's Breakfast, teaching a workshop, Church anniversary and a baptismal service - not my own, but friends from church) but I do hope I'll manage a few stitches as well!

Sounds an interesting leaf Mabel and lovely autumnal colours too. Looking forward to seeing it stitched. :)
