Wool Applique Blossoms...

Wool Applique with Hand Embroidery by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

I've been working on some wool applique
for this gorgeous black and white wool background.

Lots of vibrant colors, which pair nicely
with black and white checks...

Folksy wool flowers...

I worked some simple Interlaced Back Stitch
for the stems... gives the stem some texture,
without being overcomplicated.
(Go to Interlaced Back stitch to see how 
easy this stitch is !)

I've embellished the flowers with 
hand embroidery...
Spider Web stitch ~ French Knots ~ Seed stitch
Open Base Picot Stitch ~ Feather stitch
Couched Trellis work ~ Cast on Blossom stitch
Knotted Sheaf stitch

Old Fashioned Lilac

It's damp, spritzy and overcast here.
But the flowers don't seem to mind !
Can you smell this Old Fashioned Lilac ??
This might be the earliest it has bloomed 
in many years.  

Have a lovely weekend...

  2. You sure do know your stitches!!!
    No lilacs for me this year. I pruned mine to death last year so I knew it would not bloom :( Yours looks beautiful!
    Hugs :)

  3. Those Lilacs are fantastic. The wool applique is coming along very well with all those lovely colors on the black and white checks. It will be a gorgeous runner when finished.
