Citrus Slices: 1) stem stitch an outer circle; 2) chain stitch just inside the stem stitch; 3) stem stitch 8-10 segments, evenly spaced in the circle; 4) starting from the point of each segment, stitch two long chains on the LHS, finishing just inside the top edge, repeat this on the RHS, then fill the middle with additional chain stitches; and 5) complete all the segments in the same manner. Note: that there are three tones of a single colour for each slice.
I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . Elizabeth Parkhurst Williams Crazy Quilt (1884-90) Victorian Lady- A very rare BEAUTY. I love the overall pastel impression & softness of most tones. Although there are many vibrant jewel tones as well. All the loving artistic needlework embroidery of Mary Beatrice. Special dates, initials, musical notes on a scale, blessings symbols, cupid’s hearts, roses, tulips, sunbursts, ferns & so many other interesting floral & geometric stitches.
