SAL

Here we are again, marvelling that another three weeks have flown past, and that it’s time for the next Stitch-a-long.

I am working my way through the rings of Cathy Reavy’s Stitch Wheel Sampler. The third ring is finished, and as you can see I have begun the next ring. More of that next time. If you would like to begin, or find out more, go to Cathy’s Youtube channel.

As you can tell the stitches in this third ring are ways to create leaves. Some, like the closed fly stitch, were fun to do, and I will try to add them into my toolbox of stitches. However, I do find that some create the same effect, with only slight differences. Each stitch has a link to Cathy’s Youtube channel if you are interested in using them in your own work.

  1. Lazy daisy stitch

2. Closed fly stitch

3. Cretan Stitch

4. Raised Fishbone

5. Raised close herringbone

6. Open fly stitch

7. Wheatear stitch

8. Vandyke stitch

To be honest, I may have mixed numbers 7 and 8, as they both seem rather similar.

This Stitch-a-long is a group of very talented people. Click on the links below to see what magic they create with a needle, some threads and a backing material.

  1. looking good, and not too onerous, like in not a lot of stitching to do and you’ve found out that there are just as many ways to create leaves. I suspect you could alter some of those stitches to create rocks or other objects on your current journey – congrats.

  3. This is such a cool way to learn and now you’ll know about so many more stitches. Plus have the sample to remind you of what they were

  4. Just catching up with reading posts, it looks lovely, I do like all the leaves, I’m just about to start the last ring and there seems to have been quite a few stitches released this time…or someone’s got a head 🙂
