Five Flower Samplers: Brazilian Embroidery: More Leaves

I have not managed to stitch as many leaves as I wanted yesterday but considering how bad my allergies are acting up these days, I am rather pleased that I have managed to stitch as many as I did. The photo above shows what has been stitched so far.

This photo above shows another clutter of leaves.

And finally this last photo shows two leaves stitched on another section. I am thinking that by the time I finish stitching all 27 leaves, I will be pretty good at this. I have been stitching some leaves using Iris thread #053 and others using Iris #099. The needle used is a straw needle #5.
There is a nice example on how to do the Alternating Satin Stitch on the Brazilian Guild website.

You have made a good start on this and looking forward to seeing lots of pretty colours for the flowers

It's lovely to see someone working on Brazilian Embroidery! I've never done it but my mom has and it the various stitches always fascinated me.

Do you think showing the design in this manner is a copyright breach? I got into trouble once because of this.

Thanks, Anne :-)

Hi Terry,

Yes the flowers will be the most fun and also the most difficult part of the design.

Thanks, Christine.

It is true that we rarely see anybody work on a brazilian embroidery project on blogs.

Hope that this will change as it would be fantastic to have many more people stitch all those lovely patterns.

If it is then a lot of bloggers out there are guilty of this.

What I do see is free publicity for the art of Brazilian embroidery and its designers.

If more people see them stitched online, then hopefully more people will want to try it.

I do put links where the pattern(s) can be purchased. That is something that I always do as a rule.

Myself, I have often purchased a pattern that I have seen some other online bloggers stitched and I am relatively sure that I am not the only one. If I had not seen it then I would never have purchased it :-)

I love the shine you get when doing Brazilian!

That shine really makes a big difference in how those leaves look, doesn't it?
