A few more samples which I have been busy on over the last couple of days.
It is always interesting to have a go at new stitches and there are a few here that I have not done before.
I find that I can quite easily revert back to using just a few favourite stitches, so having a go at some new ones can be quite rewarding.
From the top there is - Whipped Back Stitch
Whipped Stem Stitch
Raised Chain Band
Chequered Chain Band
Double Herringbone Stitch
Threaded Herringbone Stitch
I then went on to play with combining stitches to make patterns which I can use in the crazy quilting.
I have worked it using perle threads on silk but I think that it would be better in stranded cottons and silks.
And to finish off I have been adding more flowers to the small 'hot border' embroidery
Lots of hand work this week.
Do you have a favourite stitch?
