Side tracking...

The little silk piece from the other week has been calling out to me. I am just loving the feel of the smooth silk at the moment and all I want to do is create smooth, shiny little stitches. Colour in with thread. There is something about 'blank fabric' that does not always appeal, so I decided to fill the entire back ground as well. Tiny little running stitches, in neat little rows and using the grain of the fabric as a guide. Getting into a rhythm it was rather meditative. 

Plump satin stitch seed completed the fruit. Almost good enough to eat.

Pomegranate Roundel
At only 6cm (2 1/4") in diameter it would make a lovely brooch, pot lid or paperweight. I have another use in store and just need to get out the glue...

Happy Wednesday,


  1. That is so lovely and your little stitches work very well.

  2. What a pretty design, Anna! I have never seen an off centre pomegranate like that, and now I am wondering why. It seems so natural! Love the leaves too. Great job!

  3. I love the texture and interest the tiny stitches add, and yes, it does look good enough to eat!!

  4. Beautiful, your little running stitches look like beads in the photos :)

  5. Thank you all for your beautiful comments. They truly make my day.

  6. Your needlework is amazing and fine. And what a difference made by tiny running stitches. Thank you for great instruction.
