My Other “Ant” Rose Finished

June 30, 2011


I sat around looking at this project for several days.  Read a good book and contimplated how I was going to finish it.  Today I decided to get it done.  I did not do the rose. Bullion knots are not my thing and that was how the rose was suppose to be stitched.  The stem was suppose to be chain stitch, I didn’t like that choice either.

My flower is a “Jan Flower” 🙂  After completing the stem using a wrapped long stitch and doing the leaves ( I did not do the detached stump work for the leaves…… (If I don’t like the stitch, it is not fun)…. I just stitched a flower out of my head.   The little ‘ant’ was fun and took no time at all. SO I have completed a UFO that I started in March of 2006. WOW !  That is a first for me.



Now I can get out my bin of projects and see what I want to do next !!!!!

    Just charming, Jan. Another good job. If you ever want to learn how to do bullions, I’ll be more than happy to teach you. Perhaps at seminar???

    Good morning.

    The kimono is coming out beautifully. I love the colors and I love the blending of the different colors/threads with various stitches. Just lovely. Good luck with the rest – can’t wait to see more photos!
