Pieces from Melusine of England

Arriving today was pieces by Melusine of England. She used three different techniques which she describes on the back of each puzzle piece.
~~~ The one on the left is wet-method felt, with red satin buttonhole stitched in red silk to create a poppy, which is finished off with black silk French knots and pistil stitches. The felt was attached to the stiffener fabric with black glass beads.

~~~The middle one is a piece of candlewicking and is worked in candlewicking thread on calico (US: muslin). The central heart is stem stitched padded satin stitch surrounded by a heart outline done in twilling stitch. The flowers are lazy daisy stitch with a French knot centre - two of which have stem stitch stems with fish bone stitch leaves.


Very nice Melusine. Thank you for the pretty fabric piece.
