Global Schwalm Sampler – Update (4)

Two more contributions to the global sampler have arrived.

Colette Bonnet from France is currently learning Schwalm whitework.

She wrote: “J´ai choisi ce motif simple justement à cause de mon inexpérience, et aussi parce qu´il symbolise pour moi les fleurs que j´aime tant.”
Roughly translated: “I chose this simple motif precisely because of my inexperience and also because it symbolizes for me the flowers that I love so much.”

She included a couple of elements of Schwalm whitework in her project including an openwork pattern and two Limet filling patterns. The small leaves turned out as did the forks on the Coral Knot stitch lines. Half-eyelet scallops round off the embroidery.

Ute Hogen from Germany is a bird lover, and so she has chosen owls as her motif. For this contribution, she modified a design by Elisabeth Baumgart.

The experienced embroiderer loves variety and likes to be creative when developing filling patterns. She combined Limet withdrawn-thread patterns and surface patterns and thus achieved an attractive contrast between the separate areas. Blanket stitch eyelets outlined with Eyelash stitches form the eyes of the owls. The branch on which the pair is sitting has been filled with Chain stitches.
