Thank you all for your lovely comments / feedback on my previous blog post. Glad to know that you liked my little experiment with traditional art forms. I plan to take out some more time for painting in coming days.
Recently, I found these beautiful decorative embroidery hoops in my craft stash. So I decided to do some needlework for a change. A bit risky for my patience level..:))) still went ahead with it. Since I didn't want to do my project using regular stitches, I indulged myself with few Brazilian Embroidery patterns. Here I must mention that I don't consider myself very good in this, but in terms of learning something new I think I have done OK......
In this one I have made roses using bullion stitch and leaves using fly stitch.
In the other one, I have incorporated various stitches... like for the flower I have used picot stitch, french knot for the centre of the flower, lazy daisy for the leaves and few bullion stitches for the buds. For the border I have combined chain stitch with buttonhole stitch & overlapped it with lazy daisy stitch.
All these patterns are inspired from Pinterest, Mary Corbets http://www.needlenthread.com/ , http://rosaliewakefield-millefiori.blogspot.in/ & few youtube videos.
Please drop in with your comments on the above....
Have a great week ahead :) and A very Happy Independence Day to all you lovely ladies !!
