Friday Homework for Lesson 42: Rambling Rose Stitch

Late again, but not too late. Here is my homework for Sunday Stitch School and the Rambling Rose Stitch.

I started with a base of Thorn Stitch, then added the roses in various kinds of silk thread and ribbons.


The stitches have this 3D effect.

Oh my! This is gorgeous! It is so colorful and cheerful.

At a later stage I might add leaves and other flowers. Let's call this bouquet a UFO or WIP.

Can you believe it when I say I did it in just over 30 minutes?

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. It was fun and very fast to do. Speed stitching! A most rewarding stitch!

Blooming beautiful! The Thorn stitch and FKs make a great combination.

A beautifully stitched bouquet. So pretty and I love your background fabric.

Janie said...

Beautiful mix; stitches, colors and silk background fabric.
Thanks for your research and examples, very enjoyable.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you! Yes, these two stitches go well together.

I too love the kimono silk and am happy to say it is easy to stitch (some are harder than concrete).

I love doing the Sunday Stitch School stitches, and looking for the 'right' kind of fabric and thread for each stitch.

It's wonderful to see that three-D effect in the stitching!

Annet said...

This stitch looks great in different threads and ribbons!

Queeniepatch said...

I have never done any Brazilian embroidery, but I guess it would look a bit like this.

Queeniepatch said...

Using different kinds of thread makes a good bouquet.

My dad hybridised roses for many years but never got a bush that had more than one rose. On the other hand, I as given a small plot in our garden and, wanting more than just one rose bush, I grafted five other varieties on to the base of a wild rose. Your roses remind me of those days.

Queeniepatch said...

Again, the beauty of embroidery is that you can hybridize any rose you want and have it produce as many flowers as you desire!
I hope you are happy to look back on those days of gardening.

Tanya said...

The roses are beautiful! I love the three D effect!

This is an easy stitch for a nice rose.
