The second ,,line” on the green hat is well on the way. It’s not quite done, but you can clearly see where it’s heading.
I have had some requests regarding the stitches I’m using. So I’ll try to remember to name them as I get along.
For this line I used Basque Stitch as a base. There are buds made with Cast on stitch (on of my all time favorites) in the “petals” made with the Basque stitch. On the right side there is greenery made with Feather stitch . On that are some tiny leaves in Detached chain stitch. On the other side are larger leaves, again in Detached chain stitch, each with a French knot in the center.
A Sneak Peak
Lutheran Confirmation is a
big huge deal here in Iceland. Lavish gifts, saloon hairstyles, professional photos, big family celebrations - the works. This spring it’s my youngest daughter turn. I’m trying to take the frugal route, I bought her shoes at a January sale, I’m going to do her hair myself, take the photo’s, bake everything (with help from my family) and make the decorations. I did however by my daughter her dream dress, and here is a sneak peak.
Here is a video about the Icelandic confirmation traditions:
