Seeing shapes at last.

Tudor rose nearly finished.
At long last with this wretched piece of work I can see actual progress. Here is the rose design with single padded satin stitch outer petals and triple padded inner petals. All it needs is the definition between the petals and a woven centre - I hope. England's nearly done!

Drawn threads held with a twisted stitch
Here you can see where I have drawn bundle of threads together and twisted them one over another. I used a single strand of DMC thread held very taut - and yes it did snap once or twice!


  1. I So understand how you feel! I'm also working on a white work piece and am still not finished with the coral knots that go all around the shapes. There is no visible progress! This technique withholds the feeling of progress until the work is nearly finished. England is looking beautiful!
