I hadn't touched the iris project for almost 6 months now :-( . So my little goal for this past week was to spend a couple of hours of my personal stitching time on this lovely project.
The leaf is stitched with long and short stitch using five shades of green and a darker green is used to do the stem stitch veins.Did you notice the puckering of the fabric near the leaf? If not,then see the picture below.
I think I had pulled a couple of stitches at the top and the fabric has puckered slightly (see the arrow) *sigh*. I do hope that it will go away while blocking..
This Iris is a RSN pattern stitched by Debra Barrett.

After spending most of my stitching time for the past two weeks figuring out how to do a couple of sewing techniques on my brand new Bernina machine I was desperately in need of an embroidery fix.
So I grabbed the first WIP bag from the basket and started adding some stitches :) By the end of the session I'd managed to complete Mr.Bunny with french knots,stem,split and satin stitches…this is how he looks…
finished the swing and started working on Ms.Bunny.
I've joined a couple crochet motifs that you saw in my last post and the doily is coming along well so far
but the tatted lace is still a 'work in slow progress'.
