Another 3 weeks have flown past!

This Stitch-A-long is for personal stitching. We post our progress every three weeks, which keeps me up to the mark.

And I have done three more squares in my sample wheel. This is where I am up to now….almost finished the second ring.

I am following the instructions on Cathy Reavy’s YouTube channel. Let’s name the stitches.

1. Detached chain stitch. The stitching is attached at the sides, rather than going through the backing material.

2. Turkish rug stitch

3. Laid stitch, with French knots to make the cup of the acorn.

I really enjoyed doing 2 and 3, so I want to give you a close up of them.

Sweet little acorns, laid stitch and French knots. The stem is coral stitch, which was a stitch way back in the first ring.
Turkish rug stitch to build up this very cute little Christmas tree, with light spilling from the top!
