WIPW - May I treat you to one?

It is time to report on the progress made since last Wednesday; that is what Work In Progress Wednesday is all about. You can read more about this on Pintangle, see other's work, and of course share your own with the rest of us. Come on, join in!

Kafferepet
I have quilted a leaf pattern of TAST #14 Stem Stitch underneath the platter of 'Sju Sorters Kakor' (seven kinds of biscuits).
May I treat you to one? Full of fibre and not one single kcal!

 You might also spot ordinary running stitches around the appliquéd biscuits.

Swedish Cushion
Here I worked Split stitches (no TAST number) for the swirls and outlines. I then filled in the shapes with random straight stitches and #14 Stem stitches before
 covering them with #13 Satin Stitch.

Would my satin stitches look better if I filled them in first? I enjoyed your biscuits with my morning coffee.

It all looks delicious.

The edge will always look better if you have a stitched outline underneath the satin stitches. If you want a padded look, add lots of stitches underneath, but for a flat surface you don't need them.
I'm glad you enjoyed the biscuits!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. Everywhere you go now, the shops are full of St Valentine chocolates, so the biscuits are 'off season'!

these are the kind of biscuits I should be eating!! The cushion stitching is lovely.

No fat, no sugar, no gluten... health itself!

Emily Breclaw said...

I just found your delightful blog through pinterest. I LOVE the fabric you chose for the plate! (Although I had to look twice to see if you'd stitched the blue around the edges of it.) Thank you for all the lovely inspiration!

Annet said...

Your leaves look great around the plate. Neat satin stitches!

Thanks for the behind the stitches look at the satin stitch - just beautiful! Every time I see your stitches I think to myself that embroidery is in my future... just lovely!

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks Emily for visiting and leaving such a kind comment. The blue fabric is hand drawn and based on a real china pattern. You can read about it here: http://queeniepatch.blogspot.jp/2013/04/wipw-china-and-ox-eyed-daisy.html

The quilting stencil I had fit just perfectly on the block and those leaves stuck out from underneath.

Queeniepatch said...

You have already made a good start with your fantastic sashiko, the future is NOW!

Pamela said...

No calories - just the kind of treats I need! As always, beautiful stitching and great progress.

Queeniepatch said...

Not only are they fat free, they are full of wholesome cotton fibre, thread vitamins and antioxidant knotts!

Susan Hook said...

Beautiful stitching, I think we all need a plate full of your delicious biscuits!

Queeniepatch said...

Do you mean I need to go and bake some more?

Elizabeth Braun said...

That's simply delightful, Queenie! Yes, no sugar, no refined grains. Goodies on a health kick!=)

Queeniepatch said...

There is only one problem with these health kicks - with no sugar they aren't that delicious!

Linda Calverley said...

Yum, yum.

Queeniepatch said...

Pass me a toothpick please - I've got some cotton fibres between my teeth.

Anneliese said...

I can't say no when you offer the treats -they are looking so appetising. I like the plate as well. I know from before that you did the design with a pen. The effect is striking.

These biscuits may LOOK tasty but I bet the ones you made for Christmas actually WERE!
