Whitework symbols

At last you can see where this piece of whitework is going.

The Tudor rose is finished with a type of basket weave stitch in the centre

The shamrock has trailing round the outside and a stem stitch round the pulled thread work. Now there is just the stem to complete it.

The thistle has eyelets for the cup that holds the flower and stem stitch outline.

The Welsh daffodil I hope to finish tomorrow and the crown in the centre has been started.

Hope I've not spoken too soon!


  1. Pippa, those are looking really lovely. Looking forward to seeing the finished symbols - I nearly put flowers but the shamrock ... and finished plants doesn't sound quite right!

  2. Thank you, Erica. I suppose they are all flowers symbols. Glad you like them. :)
