Friday Homework for Lesson 65: Rosette Stitch Rose

The Rosette Stitch Rose was easy to make and will be a good building block for flowers. It could be a rose bud, the centre of a rose or other flower. It could be rose apples on a tree, and if worked in brown and many wraps it could become a roasted coffee bean - Rosette Stitch Bean?!

WIPW - Beading

I am writing my Work In Progress Wednesday report while the rain is pelting down.

The beading I have added to
Crazy for Crazy
looks like raindrops, but the photo does not show the glitter and sheen.

I have added beads in the circled areas:

Embellish work on the Guinness block is now completed.


Next job is to add the binding and think up a new colour scheme for the next block.

Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 65: Rosette Stitch Rose

I found today's stitch in the excellent book 'A-Z of Embroidery Stitches 2'.
This stitch will make a nice flower, or part of a flower.

Make it this way:


 Wind the thread anticlockwise around the needle.



When you have the desired number of wraps,

fix the top wraps with a pin,


pull the needle through and anchor the lower wraps,

remove the pin and anchor the top wraps.

Finished!

Friday Homework for Lesson 64: Madam Totsuka's Tasselled Chain

It's been one of those weeks when nothing is 'normal'. Now it's SUNDAY, and I am rushing to hand in my FRIDAY homework for Madam Totsuka's Tasselled Chain Stitch.

It is a fiddly stitch, but gets easier for each one you make. Also I have found that perle cotton is the best choice of thread for this stitch.
