I was spurred on to work on the two cells to finish the next ring of my wheel sample. You may remember that I am following Cathy Reavy’s stitching on her YouTube channel.

This is where I am now.

A close up of the latest two. The basket is to have some flowers that we will come back to sometime during the next ring.

1. Bokhara Couching

2. Raised cup stitch This stitch looks good, but was very fiddly. I am not sure I would do it again.

The stitches on the outer ring are ones that can be used as borders and edges. Hopefully next update I will have a few completed cells to show you.

This Stitch-A-Long is for showing our personal stitching. Click on the links below to discover some wonderful stitching.

I am glad to see that you now have time to do something different! Your sampler is looking good. I tried that cup stitch too and found it fiddly – plus I am not sure how useful such a raised stitch would be. Nice to try these things though and see what we like and what drives us nuts!
