100 Details In 100 Days - Day 92


Weeping Willow
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
Weeping Willows were a popular motif for the Victorians. They were used quite often in Mourning Samplers as well as on their Crazyquilts.

So, today's detail is for a Weeping Willow tree. Stem stitch the trunk in a brown thread and then stem stitch vines and leaves (lazy daisy stitches) with green. This would look cool worked with those gorgeous varigated or overdyed threads!

Happy Stitching!
