I'm starting a new Elizabethan embroidery project with some detatched
buttonhole stitches. I'm okay with using it to fill in spaces but can't
figure or find instructions on how to make "floating" pieces. Hmmm, I'm not
sure how to describe this. I have photos and descriptions of several pieces
where layers of flower petals, etc. are standing away from the ground
fabric. The one that I see cited most often is of the peapods which fold
back to show the peas inside. A photo of that is in the lower left corner
of plate 54 in the V&A 1200-1750 embroidery book.
How would you do that? Continue to add rows but not connect them at the
I'm using one strand of floss at a time. How many you all use?
