Take a stitch Tuesday - Pistil Stitch
This is a variation of a French Knot which I have never done before, why not I ask myself as I love French Knots. It is written about in my stitch book under another name, but there are no pretty pictures to go with it, so that is probably why I have never done it. 
A pistil is part of a flower, and I've used the stitch to make my version of alliums. I used cotton pearl threads, two shades on the lower picture, although the colours look very close. I used the stitch for the stalks too, although I wished I'd used a different shade of green. 


  1. Beautiful work, and isn't it wonderful to 'discover' a stitch!

  2. So beautiful flowers on your wonderful painted fabric

  3. I adore your little stitchy garden, the alliums are gorgeous! x
