More flowers on the July block

I added more knotted buttonhole stitch flowers with pistil stitch stamens.

The patch with orange pansies is rather dominating.

 A big yellow flower button and two smaller ones reduce the domination of the orange.

See? Better ;) The attention is drawn by the big flower button.

I wanted to work another catch up stitch on the edge of the lace: the pekinese stitch.
I wanted the back stitches to be invisible and that is what they are...invisible.

It is a tough job to make pekinese stitches in invisible back stitches.
The result is nice though. The thread is Kreinik #8


  1. Marjolein your use of the large yellow flower button is exactly what works here with the smaller ones. Your stitching is beautiful. That netted stitching is amazing. Blissful Dear...

  2. you are so inspiring with your creations, such a joy to read your blog and so informative, many thanks.

  3. With skill you know to combine the materials and the result is magnificent!!
    Hugs and kisses.

  4. Great stitching. Its very clean and perfect. The embroidery is just beautiful. You've done an amazing job.

    1. Thank you Mischy for visiting and your lovely compliment.
      Have a great weekend!

  5. You have made two great decisions; the buttons tame that 'wild' orange pansy piece, and the idea of Pekinese stitch worked on INVISIBLE backstitch is unique.
