Fruit Reticules
My fruit reticule plan... 
2nd-Sep-2006 05:50 pm
I'll be travelling around a bit over the next few days and wanted to take some handwork with me, so I thought it might be the perfect opportunity to get stuck in to that fruit reticule. I have been pondering it for a while and am much inspired by this four-sided reticule. I also want to try stumpwork and like the idea of doing berries, as in this garland.

Here's my sample piece - I didn't have the right thread for the leaves, but it arrived this morning (yay!), so hopefully it will look a bit better. And I didn't have time to trial any of the fruit, but it looks straightforward enough. I don't think the lettering is going to work out, though. I can't find a font that I like enough and that is easy enough to embroider.

I hope it's not breaking the fruit reticule rules too much to make one that is embellished with fruit rather than actually fruit-shaped?

Embellishment is fine. Not very strict rules, I must say :)

Your sample looks great and I love the stumpwork idea!
