Judy~Berry Stitch~ TAST


To me this stitch looks like an ultra thick detached chain.  As you can see, precious little stitching happened this past week, mostly because I was working on this guy and a few other elf projects.  This snowman is on a sweater for my grand daughter, and since I did a tiny bit of embroidery on it thought I'd share it. He was supposed to have french knot eyes and buttons, but I used tiny buttons instead.  One thing I've learned from all of you is to take the leap and experiment with a pattern.  Thanks!  Now back to the elf projects!

I did this stitch on my Dec block and I found it only really looked good when I exaggerated the petals.

I wish it was cold enough here for a cute snowman sweater!

That snowman is too cute. Debra's right, we would melt here if we were wearing one of those sweaters. It's 79 today, and humid.

Yea, I was just joking about wanting it to be cold enough for a sweater. I like wearing shorts in Dec! Ha! Ha! Ha!!

Your wishes came true here. We had a few flakes this morning, but now it's just really grey with temps in the high thirties. This snowman is on its way to Chicago where it won't melt.....

Sue's had just happened to have some daisies on it, but I think that stitch would look much better in perl cotton. Although I kinda like the thick daisies for a change...

I lived 6 years or so in Chicago. I've done my duty!

Yes! I grew up in WI and sure know what you mean. I left long ago and only go back in the summer or fall! ;-)

That snowman is adorable. Also the petals remind me of my eighth grade sewing lessons.

The snowman sweater is adorable. I really like the beginning of your flowers. They have a different look in perle, but not necessarily better.

Thanks, Susan.

Oh, I LOVE your snowman!! I could do with a sweater like that today, with snow on the ground, freezing rain and snow falling, and a temperature of -6C this morning. Damp and a little cold.
Your berry stitch looks good on SBS's dress.

Wonderful head turning sweater.

Mr Snowman is adorable. He looks a very happy chappy. Sue's hat is looking good with the berry stitching so far. I'll be stitching the berry stitch this week on my new block.

Just this week I have passed through the opposite ends of the temperature range. England on Tuesday was -5'C when I left, and then I arrived in NZ on Thursday to a beautiful 27'C.

Thanks. Suz! It's rainy and cold here, and yesterday we had a few flakes of snow.

Thanks. You can see the whole thing on Ravelry if you go to jatshaw.

Welcome home! I bet you're glad to be back to the warmth but it was also probably hard to leave....
