Assisi 1

The March challenge for stitch explorer is Assisi. This was new to me, so I read a lot about it online and found this lovely spring bunny pattern. I made a little Easter ornament with it to discover this technique. I used 2 threads of DMC for the cross stitches and 1 for the backstitches. Green is one of the traditional colours for Assisi, so I used 'spring green' (light and dark) for my ornament.

On this page there is a link to download Assisi Embroideries by Thérèse de Dillmont. It’s listed as Dillmont, Thérèse de, Assisi Embroideries, DMC Library.

  1. You are hot off the mark with the new stitch! I love your little bunnies. I must get down to this challenge, I think it is a nice technique.

  2. Een goede start! Assisi is een mooie techniek (vind ik), maar wel zeer tijdrovend. Mijn eerste voorbeeldje is dan ook nog niet klaar.
