Friday Homework for Lesson 42: Rambling Rose Stitch

Late again, but not too late. Here is my homework for Sunday Stitch School and the Rambling Rose Stitch.

I started with a base of Thorn Stitch, then added the roses in various kinds of silk thread and ribbons.


The stitches have this 3D effect.

    1. At a later stage I might add leaves and other flowers. Let's call this bouquet a UFO or WIP.

    1. I too love the kimono silk and am happy to say it is easy to stitch (some are harder than concrete).

    1. I love doing the Sunday Stitch School stitches, and looking for the 'right' kind of fabric and thread for each stitch.

    1. I have never done any Brazilian embroidery, but I guess it would look a bit like this.

  9. My dad hybridised roses for many years but never got a bush that had more than one rose. On the other hand, I as given a small plot in our garden and, wanting more than just one rose bush, I grafted five other varieties on to the base of a wild rose. Your roses remind me of those days.

    1. Again, the beauty of embroidery is that you can hybridize any rose you want and have it produce as many flowers as you desire!
      I hope you are happy to look back on those days of gardening.
