Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 42: Rambling Rose Stitch

Welcome to Queenie's Rose Garden at Sunday Stitch School. It is time for another botanical stitch.

'Every rose has a thorn', would be a good saying for last week's Thorn Stitch. Today we are turning the saying around: 'Every thorn has a rose'. Let's cultivate some roses.

I found the Rambling Rose Stitch in

and also at Art and Needlework. Check out this link.

It is surprisingly easy, you only need three small straight stitches (or a Granitos) circled by Stem Stitch.





Work your way around the centre.


As the rose grows in size, take longer stitches and go underneath the rose.


Finish by anchoring the last stitch.



Optional you can add leaves, and of course some THORNS!


Aida is not the best fabric to make Rambling Roses on, but it can be done.


 On the Sunday Stitch School's Reference Chart.


Homework:
Silk on silk. Use flat silk and ribbons for ribbon embroidery and let the roses grown on this kimono silk.

Cute rose, but stem stitch sounds complicated to me! I’m off to see if I can make such a pretty little rose myself!

a very old post, but I think this one and the rambling rose are the same. I have mentioned the link from where I got the idea. Have you come across that website?

Those are very cute roses. It just shows what one can do with two simple stitches and some imagination.

Queeniepatch said...

It is not complicated. Give it a try!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you for sharing this with us. I had a look and think your rose is charming. I sent you an email.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, you don't need more than a short length of thread and a minute, and your rose has blossomed.

Rachel said...

There are so many lovely ways to make embroidered roses, aren't there!

Pretty roses

Queeniepatch said...

There are! When making floral embroidery it is always good to have different 'varieties' of roses.

Queeniepatch said...

It has a bit of Mackintosh rose over it, doesn't it?

Janie said...

That makes a sweet little rose doesn't it!
Thanks for sharing.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, indeed, and easy to make, too!

Pamela said...

I like this! I can't wait to see the ribbon on kimono fabric!

Annet said...

This looks like a very easy way to make roses. It should be fun to see how it looks in different threads.

J'ai trouvé ce point sous le nom de :
- point de rose (peut être avec quelques variantes)
Très joli variation de rose
Merci

I hope the thread and ribbon don't fray on the kimono silk. I have to keep my fingers crossed! If I do, how can I sew, ha, ha! Just have to give it a try!

Queeniepatch said...

A very easy and quick stitch, and I am sure it would change the look of the rose when different kinds of thread is used.

Here is a translation:
I found this item under the name of:
- rose point (may be with some variations)
Very nice variation of pink
Thank you

Thank you for your information. I have found no Swedish name.
