Friday Homework for Lesson 34: Japanese Stitch

Late again, but I have worked hard!

Here is my homework for stitch #34 Japanese Stitch.

First as a canvas stitch

Which was easy to stitch and makes a nice filling.

The Japanese embroidery with flat silk floss on kimono silk was harder to work.
The stitch could just as well be ordinary Satin Stitch, I guess.

After having done the Japanese Stitch I added Stem Stitch - for the stems.


Then I added some Chinese Knot Stitches in purple and blue,
threw in a few silver lines made of Japanese Stitch,
and a sprinkle of Chinese Cross Stitches in gold.

This will eventually become a greeting card.

Nihon Shishu, Japanese embroidery, is more difficult than I thought. I will have to try again!

You may have found it difficult, but it does look good!

Beautiful card! The silk thread is so pretty.

Thank you, your words are comforting!

Pretty, yes, and prettier on the bobbin! It snags easily and the kimono fabric is a harsh kind of silk.

Beautiful work! In spite of being difficult it turned out great.
I enjoy your projects.

Your embroidery is beautiful but It is something I keep away from because I know I will end up pulling my hair out.

That bit of homework looks like a challenge to me. Nice job!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. It was nice to try it and it wetted my appetite for more trials.

From time to time I feel like pulling out my hair, not so with this project but it WAS a challenge. Want to do more, though, so it can't be that bad!

Queeniepatch said...

It is very different from the beautiful bag you showed me today with the Huck weaving embroidery.
Thank you for a lovely day!
