TLAQUEPAQUE #1

September 27, 2022

No it is not my Tulips finished. I am a little anxious about the technical aspects of doing the windmill so I put it aside and pulled out a WIP. Tlaquepaque #1 was started early in 2018. Since it was over 80% done I can only guess that I put it aside because there was something I needed to do.

I love this piece and remember enjoying stitching it. In less than a week it is finished‼️

A Cassandra Prescott Design

The tree leaves are done with Boucle. It is a tricky thread but gives a wonderful effect. If you are using this thread you need to use a large needle (#18) so the nubby texture of the thread doesn’t get stretched and frayed.

Tree Leaves with Boucle

The doorway and flowers on the right were next. Some Boucle was used for leaves and three different thread were used for the French knot flowers. One was a metallic, one was a real shiny rayon and the rest were floss. Knots were in one or two wraps

Boucle was also used for the greenery at the bottom of the tree.

Last was the baskets of flowers. More French knots a few beads. Flair was used for the baskets. I thought it was a strange choice if thread but went with it.

    The French knot flowers are beautiful. I like their variations in colour.
