Creative Stitching in the heat.


Although we've been experiencing a very early heat wave I've managed to do a bit more stitching on my leaves. The centre vein is one long drizzle stitch of about 40 wraps that I tacked down at the top.  The side veins are bullion knot.  The two yellow outline stitches are both coral stitches and the orange outline are bullion loops.
 I added some Palestrina knots in turquoise.
 I decided my little palm island needed a sunset and added one with one of Sue Spargo's new Eleganza threads with a whipped half circle.
 Some Pekingese stitches in a variegated green on this leaf.
 Fly stitches in another Eleganza thread and bullion knots around the outside.
 This is what I'm working on..lots yest to embellish.
 Thursday I went to the Cloth Shop in Vancouver and got their Rainy Days row by row experience.
 I also got one of the Needle and I breaking surf on the beach row.  Love the umbrellas, and seagulls that Debbie added.  Her shop is in Burnaby.

Any stitching that doesn't require the iron sounds good for hot days!! You're leaves are all so wonderful!! It's fun to see another couple of rows, I particularly like the rain row.

I can't seem to stitch very much in this heat! a little in the morning and a little in the evening...

Lovely stuff, and its a great way to not heat up more without using an iron.

Wow! I confess to having a running battle with bullion knots, so I very much admire your edging with them! To do a drizzle stitch -- I'd been in pain! ;-) Beautiful work!
