Softest pastels in pink, yellow and blue frame the fragrant Rosa ballerina, a musk rose with clusters of single, five-petal flowers edged in a darker shade of pink, and nestled in surrounding blanket-stitched leaves. The heart of the rose is stitched with Rosalie’s original “snowball” technique and a drizzle variation for the stamens is credited to B.E. Designer/Instructor Loretta Holzberger for a technique she developed.
The wreath repeats four times around with a motif that can also be used elsewhere, either on wearables, crazy quilts or hand-embroidered greeting cards. A traceable pattern is included.
Kit includes pattern printed on fabric, threads, and instructions
Other flowers you will meet with your needle are the delicate Shellflower in triple satin stitch with Ciré and leaves using a clever technique for adding a natural look to satin stitched leaves.
Showy Evening Primroses with their unique Star-Crossed Drizzle stamens are stitched in pale yellow; and delicate blue Chicory, sometimes known as Cornflower or Endive, is stitched with bullions, straight stitches and a bright bead center.
This is an intermediate level Brazilian embroidery design. The Star-Crossed Drizzle is an advanced level stitch.
Design: 6” circular.
