Stitching Silk


When I started stitching in my little silk book I was thinking I would do just leaves and fill them in with many different stitches.  Now I have reconsidered and I am including other things from the natural world.  I have used the Turkman stitch for one wing of this dragonfly and really like the way it looks.  So now I am wondering if I should use that stitch for all the wings.  That doesn't go with my original plan so I am not really wanting to do that.  Possibly I could do the opposite wing with this same stitch as I do like the symmetry of it.

What a great stitch for the wing.

Angela, personally my vote is for the opposite wings matching. You always have the body to try out a third stitch and suspect other insects with wings (fly? butterfly? bee?) to play some more.

I'm glad you changed your mind and started on a dragonfly instead of another leaf - follow your heart!
If I were you I'd do the other wing also with Turkman stitch and then the two smaller wings in another similar stitch (Crossed Feather, Double Lock, Buttonholed Double Chain ...)
