 It looks as good on Aida, above, as on the sampler, below, don't you think?

The pink beads with brown thread look like sakura.

Lovely examples Queenie.........I like how you can bead these stitches in numerous ways !
Talking of beads,I am learning Peyote and Right Angle weave and really enjoying it !
Have a good week dear friend,

It was totally by 'accident', but you are right, they look like sakura.

There is no limit to what you can do with beading. I think the Beaded Fern stitch would look great for Christmas decorations.
I am afraid I have to admit to looking up Right Angle weaving! I had no idea what it was, but after watching a YouTube video I recognise it. Beadwork and jewellery making was extremely popular some years ago in Japan.
What are you making, a bracelet? Whatever it is, enjoy it!

Your samples are very nice. I think (beaded) fern stitch looks good on any fabric.

Anneliese said...

Some beautiful variations - the brown line with the astray stitches is my favorite - I don't know where I am going to - ?

Queeniepatch said...

I agree. It is a great stitch for crazy quilting where you mix so many types of fabric.

Queeniepatch said...

Change the colour of beads and you get pink cherry blossoms, mimosa or red berries on a Christmas wreath... Anything will look good.

I like the yellow fern stitch with the red beads, fun experiments.

margaret said...

yes the beading works so well on fern stitch lovely Queenie

Queeniepatch said...

The relly fun thing about beaded stitches is that you can play with colour contrast and add sparkle to a dull thread.Red and yellow work well together.

Queeniepatch said...

This is an easy beaded stitch - some or the others have been a bit troublesome with tangled or knotted threads.

I have made a bracelet for my daughter on the loom and now I am just trying to learn the different processes of bead weaving ! Then last night I had a needful urge to do a 'GLAZIG' style embroidery............You know sometimes Queenie my brain is in overdrive and I just have to go with the flow ! !

The beads make a nice variation to the fern stitch!

I just love all those different beads.

Queeniepatch said...

Isn't it wonderful to have creative juices overflowing? As I have now completed the Swedish wool embroidery collar I have time to start another project, and it might turn into three!

Queeniepatch said...

I think it is a very festive stitch and great for Christmas decorations.

Queeniepatch said...

I have too many beads, if that is possible?!, but many of them are not suited for TAST embroidery, being either too small (for bead weaving beads) or too large (for accessory making). I am however glad to be using as many as I can.

Good for you Queenie, go for it ! Cannot wait to see your next post .......xx

Your samples are all fantastic! I love the variety of color combinations. As soon as I saw the brown with pink beads, I thought, "Oooh! Perfect for a cherry blossom tree!" Reading through the comments, I noticed that idea crossed your mind too. Thank you for the inspiration!
