I am happy to give you a progress report in this Stitch-A-Long! And good progress too.
As you know I am doing Cathy Reavy’s Stitch Wheel Sampler. It is designed so that each cell is a different stitch.
This is where is is at the moment. Not much further to go!
Close ups of each stitch….
(I got a little muddled with my numbering on the photos. I showed you the one with the x last time. Also you can probably count better than I can. There is no #5!)
- 1. The line is Chain stitch; the flowers are lazy daisy, with some little French knots.
- 2. A couple of rows of Feather stitch
- 3. Couching
- 4. Knotted pearl stitch
- 6. I have just realised that this one is also #4, knotted pearl stitch.
- 7. Double up and down blanket stitch
- 8. Blanket stitch
- 9. Heavy chain stitch
I have also added these sweet little pink flowers to the basket in the earlier ring. They are created in oyster stitch, which is rather fiddly. Some of the other stitches create petals with less fiddle.
I’m on the home stretch. Fingers crossed that it will be finished next check in!
This SAL is for our personal embroidery. The members of this group do wonderful and interesting work. Follow the links to be inspired!
