I actually finished Abi Gurden’s Tree of Stitches back in October, it was even before my camera broke so I had pictures of it, but for some reason I never posted them.
Well today is your lucky day, not only will you get to see the finished masterpiece (modesty is my middle name), but I even have a not seen before WiP picture to show you (exciting stuff, I know).
When we left off (back on September 5th) I had finished parts 1-6. Here are the next 2 stitches/part, part 7 – Jerusalem Stitch and part 8 – Floral Stith.
After that it would appear that I just got too lazy to chronicle my TOS adventure, and the next picture I have is of the completed tree, with it’s furry and feathered friends. My White Tree of Gondor (sort of).
The stitches that make up the rest of the tree are (in order from Floral stitch): Norwich stitch, Star Stitch, Rhodes square Stitch, Fancy Cross, Tied Windmill Stitch and Leaf Stitch.
Lester and Horace (owl and bunny) are made up of Straight Stitches, Knit Stitch, Oval and Octagonal Rhodes Stitch.
And here is a recap on the material used.
Fabric – Polstitches 32-count evenweave (possibly The Deep)
Tree Trunk – DMC Satin 415
Rest of the Tree – Caron Waterlilies Quicksilver
Horace and Lester – Caron Waterlilies Green Tea
I haven’t done anything with my finished tree, it’s rolled up with my other finishes longing for some attention. I’m planning to give them some very soon!
I’m also planning another tree, possibly in autumn colours or a Weirwood Tree from Game of Thrones, I like the white bark and blood red leaves look. I’ll let you know when I’ve decided
