Time is scarce these days, but here’s another little embroidery pattern – this time, a fuschia flower, in the Jacobean style.
I think this pattern is exceptionally pretty, and the embroidery stitches used to produce it can, again, be quite simple.
The edges of the petals are buttonhole stitch. The center of the petals are satin stitch (without padding), the center petal can be worked in cretan stitch or even even open fishbone. The stamens are stem stitch, topped with three French knots. The decorations inside the petals are single fly stitches.
Right now, I’m in the middle of a couple projects – trying to catch up on the silk sampler from this summer, and working on another project which, for me, is totally “different.” I’ll share it with you later! It’s somewhat bizarre, somewhat funny, and completely casual.
In the meantime, I just realized that I was missing a stitch in my Video Library of Embroidery Stitches Index! I’m going to go add it now!
