Everyone is making such lovely compositions with their stitches! If you haven’t seen them, you can pop over to Pin Tangle or Stitchin Fingers and have a look at some of them. I sat down and wanted to try a composition too, but I just wasn’t excited about what I had drawn, so I just picked up my needle to see what I felt like doing. It turns out I just wanted to make some simple rows with the stitches.
So far we have feather stitch, buttonhole stitch, cretan stitch, herringbone stitch, and fly stitch. I think it’s great to see them side-by-side. It gives you the chance to see how each has a different movement and feeling. (Remember to think of them as brush strokes!) I will continue making rows of stitches on this cloth. I may add variations, I don’t know. Sometimes you just have to wait and see what feels right. I didn’t re-post my sampler that I had made for summer stitch school for cretan stitch.
Tomorrow is a new stitch. We will see what fun there is to have with it!
