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