As you see I continued this week's stitch on the same fabric piece as w\Week 4. I like this stitch because you can work it in just about any direction. I've used this stitch before, so I did only three things with it this time. On the left is a green patch where I tried to similate grass using 6 different threads. I overlapped the rows (working from top to bottom) and made the stems different sizes and working a few of the stitches under previous ones. The middle section looks kind of chaotic. What I attempted was to create twigs with the buttonhole stitches worked from either side. Most of this area was done in #5 perle, but I used a single strand of Watercolours to work a couple of "sprigs" and also the French knots. On the right is a spiral. I love how this stitch holds a curve and how the little stems also curve. I finished early, so I now have plenty of time to practice bullion stitches for next week.
Below is the whole sampler for Weeks 4 and 5.
