Pink on Pink



Paper template to mark position of foundation stitches




Foundation stitches = chain stitch in coton a broder




Starting at centre, whipped needleweaving in coton a broder over ground stitches incorporating one more stitch at the end of each row taking care not to pierce fabric




Each chain stitch has now been used




Continuing to fill shape




Pulling the threads of the chain stitches together to make a "frilly" edge

That looks like fun! I've always liked making designs with the spider web stitches.

Thank you so much for posting this Shelley!
An incarnation of needleweaving I've never heard before! And as amazing as all your work.

How interesting. I'm not much into embroidery (my Mother is), but I love your weaving and stumpwork.

Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog - a great way for me to find new and interesting blogs. I love this stitch and will try it out today as I'm working on a few different CQ blocks.

Really love your woven flowers! Wish I'd found this before I finished my cream/white CQ as I'd have loved to incorporate one of these! Guess I'll just have to start another one! Thanks for the tutorial!
