Extra Joggle for Week 1

Single stitch samples

I thought I had finished Lesson 1, but I was inspired by Beth's flystitch:

and dashed off to do this with buttonhole! Thanks Beth!



I've used Perle cotton, stranded cotton, flower threads and double knitting wool on polyester.

That lead to this:



All in cretan stitch. Threads are machine polycotton, flower thread, stranded cotton, perle cotton, tapestry wool, imitation jap and metallic machine embroider thread on a piece of polyester.

Great Samplers. I love how you turned one stitch (cretan) into a scenic piece! Awesome!!

Love it - especially the "fish net" background!

It is wonderful to see this work. To me it seems there is so much energy pouring out of the top piece. I love every bit of them both. Thank you so much.
