Friday Homework for Lesson 39: Granitos

Time to hand in Friday Homework for Sunday Stitch School.

This week the stitch is called Granitos, I guess Granito is singular, but then my Spanish has not improved since last Sunday!


Student:

If Granitos mean small grains, 

then I can sew 

Granito grains of sand,

green cacti Granitos,

with blue Granito flowers, 

Chain stitched stems from where

purple Granito blossoms dangle,

and white Granito petals sprout, 

while yellow Granito petals,

on top of Stem stitched stems

spread out from black Granito crossed centres....

Teacher:
Since when was your homework poetry?
The task was BIOLOGY!

Student:
But all these plants, and the sand, too, IS biology - flora and geology!

Teacher:
Well, at least your stitching is not as awful as your verse!

You've shown very nicely how much variety you can get with very few stitches!

Annex's trick with the needle to guide the placement of the tread was GREAT!

This pretty composition would make a lovely greetings card

Beautiful stitching and love the bright background.

It took some time to make the grains of sand!

Queeniepatch said...

I am still not sure about the name. That 's' at the end make me think of plural but obviously it is not!

Queeniepatch said...

It was fun to make but did take time to do the small grains of sand or pebbles.

Queeniepatch said...

The background is SO difficult to find thread colour that show up well!

Annet said...

It's a lovely scenery!

Queeniepatch said...

It's a lovely STITCH! Much underestimated I think.

Julie Fukuda said...

The garden is having fun in that colorful background.

Queeniepatch said...

it's a difficult background to work! Almost no colour shows up well. I should have to stitch to white or black.
