P is for ......


Pulled Thread Work
Pattern Darning
working one these two slightly different forms of counted thread work is very slow and not to be done when tired! this little piece is far from perfect, I had to pick out and redo bits I had to remind myself that this is just a little sample piece or it would never had got finished! and there are still more than a few mistakes in there!
It was nice to work the pineapple in the variegated thread, I think the colours worked out well.
Thank you to all those who left lovely comments on my 'Ocean' tag it was so lovely to read them all :)


  1. This is beautiful Yvonne (despite your own critique). The colours are all certainly fresh & ready for Summer fruit refreshments I think :0) Mo x

  2. Love your color choices! Very pretty!

  3. Gorgeous embroidery and colours! Valerie

  4. Wow looks perfect to me Yvonne. Very creative looks great Jules

  5. Wow - this must have taken ages Yvonne. The stitching on the pineapple is stunning. I am so looking forward to seeing this collection of tags in its entirety.

  6. Looks Pretty Perfect to me Yvonne! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does a technique over and over again till its right! Lovely warm colours, Jane xx

  7. Perfect colours and a really juicy tag! Love your stitch work. X

  8. Fabulous tag, Yvonne. The variegated thread gives an added extra to the lovely textures you have in there.
