My Band Sampler 197 – TAST II stitch 02 – More Knotted Loop Stitch – Details 1041 to 1042 – Arboretum Open Day March 17th, 2010

Bird Sculpture at the Canberr Arboretum

knotted loop stitch trees

Knotted Loop Stitch makes good leaves and it follows that it could also make good trees and I used it to create the trees in this detail that records a lovely early morning walk with friends at the National Arboretum being etablished in Canberra…The site of the arboretum has panoramic views of Canberra in all directions, The Hot Air Ballons were up and after the rain we have had recently everything is green and as pretty as a picture…

The Bird on the Mountain could well be to represent the Sculpture of a bird on his nest at the Arboretum(great sculpture made out of old rusty metal car bits and tools), but its not, what looks like a mountain was supposed to look like my roof,off in the distance, just pocking out above the trees and the Bird on My roof is to represent Bird Roofing Restorations who restored my roof last week.

The detail at the bottom is Knotted loop stitch with beads added.

    The knotted loop stitch looks great with the beads combined. Also I like the tree done in the stitch too – it has given me an idea for a Christmas tree for my crazy blocks. Now all I have to do is practise the stitch!
