SAL

Apologies for not getting this post out yesterday. For some reason it slipped by.

Last time I had just begun the sampler wheel from Cathy Reavy’s videos, having done the preparation. This is where I was up to:

This is where I am now:

I am enjoying it, working at my own pace, learning new stitches. The sections are just the right size to practice the them. Most of them are new to me, so I am including a guide to them and links to Cathy’s excellent videos.

Of course the centre is made of French knots. I used two threads of different thicknesses to get the more textured look.

  1. Palestrina knot stitch

2. Drizzle stitch

3. Pistil stitch

4. Bullion knot

5. Coral knot stitch

6. Cast on stitch

7. Colonial knot

8. Bullion knot rose (isn’t this one pretty?)

Thanks for dropping by. There are other very talented stitchers who are part of this Stitch A-Long. Check them out and enjoy their work simply by clicking on the links below.

  1. Oh I love this design, I have been watching Margaret stitch this for the last few weeks and am so envious of you clever people who can stitching without holes in their fabric. Cross stitch and Hardanger are my limit. xx

    1. Cathy’s instructions are very clear. As well, each stitch is contained in its box, so if you don’t like the stitch you can move on to the next one!
