Easter Motifs - Part Five



Remember my Easter motif ? 


Since I last posted about this project, I have completed the eggs.   I used a variety of stitches on these.  On the pink egg, you may recognize {from left to right} the Threaded Back Stitch, the Herringbone Stitch, the Chain Stitch, and the Fern Stitch.  I used French Knots to accent some of the stitches.  Also the lavender egg is filled with French knots:



For the purple and lavender egg, I used {from top to bottom} the chain stitch, two rows {in opposite directions}of Blanket Stitch and the Whipped Back Stitch.  All the eggs are outlined in the Stem Stitch.  I used three strands of floss for the outlines. 


This was such a fun project!  I recorded all the pertinent information in my journal:




Here is the color palette I used:

It is so beautiful! I especially love the texture of all the different stitches together.

The journal is such a good idea so you can check on colors and stitches used so you don't have to try to remember if asked about something!

Been meaning to tell you how sweet the ballerina embroidery is. I know this sounds odd, but I love how the hangers look. LOL! The tutus are sweet and frilly, but I love the boldness of the black hanger!

Darlene - Thank you! I love this journal - it is keeping me so organized :) I really like the look of the black hangers too - I think they set off the colors really well.
