Panel 12 - Daffodils, Lavender and Violas.
GB Ribbons / Pale yellow, Sage, Purple, Mint. Blue
Yellow Organza Ribbon.
Gold / Silver seed beads.
So we start with the daffodil stems, using sage ribbon, I made twisted straight stitches for the leaves. Then I worked the daffodil Petals using pale yellow ribbon and detached chain stitch. So we end with this
Next was to make the daffodil bells, taking a 6cm length of organza
Fold it over, a tack stitch the ends together, then run a tacking stitch along one edge
Pull the thread and gather stitches, open the bell and stitch the back closed leaving a long tail this will be used to attach to the ground fabric
Make 2 of these bells, and attach them to the ground fabric, ending with this
Next taking DMC 470, I stem stitched the lavender stems, and wrapped a couple of the stems.
next I used the blue 3mm ribbon to make small flat ribbon stitches to denote the lavender. I made a few below the plant to denote dropped lavender.
Next came the violas, I made 3 petals using the purple ribbon, making detached chains close together, and then changed to the pale lemon to make the last petal on each Viola. I then added a gold or silver bead to middle of each flower, ending with this
And so ends panel 12 - all that is left to do to complete this project is to use a lavender organza ribbon to separate each panel, and attach the spider to panel 1. I will do this over the next week or so and post a final update when completed.
So I hope you have enjoyed following my progress on a new project, and may even investigate and have a go yourself.
Thanks for following.
