Tranquil Waters (Black Swans) in ribbon embroidery
Good morning 🙂
Many have asked for the much-loved Tranquil Waters design too and now the license has expired, but many of you were lucky enough to purchase the panel. Here are a few tips 🙂

Today I will show you the embroidered piece by the talented Emma Kriegler
and how she made the flowers in the foreground…
More detail 🙂
and the flowers in the foreground…
The lilac and red flowers in the front are made in loose/puffed ribbon stitch and the green leaves alongside are made in the same way.
For the fluffy flowers, Emma used single-knotted stitch.
Hint: This stitch is similar to Turkey stitch but I think it is an easier stitch to make.
- Make loops close together, securing each loop with a tiny stay stitch.
- Cut the loop and trim to the desired length.
- Fluff the thread. You will find the information on this page.
It looks difficult, but it is actually very easy to do, I promise!
Enjoy your Thursday
PS. I have added the list of what was used in this design and you could contact your nearest stockist for these supplies.
