Puriri Wreath

Finished at last – my Puriri Wreath stitchery block.  So that is one down, and eight more to go.  But I’m in no hurry, and I am treating this project as my long term stitchery project
Puriri Wreath stitchery block

New Zealand designer Jenny Hunter designed nine blocks featuring New Zealand trees as applique patterns, but I decided to do my version as stitcheries, using Perle No 5 threads. I’ve prepared all the blocks, and I’m enjoying doing a little stitching as we are travelling around the South Island on our caravan holiday. Now - what one shall I start next?

Your block is ever so pretty Jenny!

Well done Jenny. Your wreath is lovely xx

It's lovely. You were clever to convert the appliqué patterns into embroidery for your trip. Embroidery is relaxing and very portable.

Janice said...

Lovely. They will be a nice memento of your trip.

Karen S said...

It looks lovely. You are making good progress on these.

What a great take along project! How clever to change the applique to embroidery!
