V is for ......

Vase
in Vandyke stitch

A simple tag decoration this week as there was only one stitch but such a beautiful stitch to do, 
The vase shape was cut from pink silk and the stitch then worked over the top.


 I like the raised effect it creates, its very tactile.
I have been thinking a bit about what I might do with all my stitched tags. Kevin has suggested that I put them on a canvas and hang them in the dining room. When I started out on the little project it was my intention to make them into little book I'm still undecided, perhaps once they are complete and I see them all together it will all become clearer.

We are having some beautiful weather here in Fife it's so nice to see the sun out all day, looking forward to sunny days in our caravan :)

  6. What a beautiful effect - I've never heard of Vandyke stitch but it's gorgeous and looks very complicated. I bet all your tags together must look amazing :o)

  9. I think this is my favorite tag in your series thus far. The springy colors are fabulous, and the unusual textures mesmerizing. I don't know if you're taking votes, but I agree that they would look good framed. Blessings!
