……for my Stitch-A-Long post that should have been posted yesterday.
So let’s get right to it.
I have been working on a stitching sampler from Cathy Reavy. Each stitch is well described on videos. I am enjoying them, but moving slowly. Thoughts are swirling somewhere about how I will use some of the stitches in my informal work.
There are two stitches completed on the outer ring.
The stitches in this outer ring will be ones that can be used for edges and boundaries.
- Raised Stem Band ~ this will be an interesting one to create tree trunks and branches.
- Stem stitch and outline stitch ~ These are very similar stitches, the only difference is whether the thread lies to the top or the bottom. Cathy has put these two together, with the stem stitch creating the pod on the left and the outline stitch on the right pod.
I have finished my jumper, so I am hopeful that I will be able to power along with this sampler at night.
This SAL is for our personal embroidery. The members of this group do wonderful and interesting work. Follow the links to be inspired!
