Button flowers.

On seeing the heading" button flowers", you may think that I am creating a flower with buttons. Yes, I am going to do that too. But here I embroidered one flower motif with button.

Exams are over for Naveen. For a short break ,he came to my house. He is very happy spending time with his grandpa at the swiming pool, tennis court and other activities. Suddenly he thought that he is not spending time with his Vijimma.
What to do with me?
He opened the Almeria and felt like fainting.brushes, paints,threads, needles, hoops..................
He told that he will sort out everything for my easy reach out.He started his work......
He asked me to sit comfortably in a corner and just guide what is what.
Yes I have done it happily narrating the stories what is what and where i brought each and everything  and all.While speaking with him i finished this design. Actually this design i had drawn in the cloth for doing whipped wheel. But due to some busy work, i left it as it is. Now it is handy and the hidden inside button box made me stitch like button flower.

Now have a look at my button flower.

TAST 2012 week 11 Whipped Wheel

The Take a stitch on Tuesday 2012 week 11 is Whipped wheel.
It is really an interesting stitch. This can make itself a flower design.
Like this.

Here is my example.
Here I show How I did this wheel.
I stitched just a little running stitch in a round form like this.

From the centre i started doing lazy daisy like stitch whipping the running stitch like this.
Now a centre wheel formed and I started doing the wheel by whipping the lines like this
I whipped 5 times and completed the yellow design.
Now coming the another colour. Green here 3 lines like this.
Now i had separated the line like diamond and it starts like this.
And finished like this.
Further can be whipped with the outline stitches like this.

Now I stared adding beads to it and it does look like this.
