Friday Homework for Lesson 41: Thorn Stitch

I have just fooled around with this week's homework of Thorn stitch.

First I added a few odd Thorn Stitches to this piece where I had previously worked Whipped Running Stitch and X-Ray Stitch.


 Secondly I pulled out some pieces and strands from my box of Challenge Threads, and couched them down with simple Thorn Stitches.

Very artistic! How do you make such perfect circles?

Thank you!

Ha, ha! With a tea- or egg cup, a charcoal marker and slow stitching!

Rachel said...

It does look like you had fun!

I have Christmas on the brain and see your artistic stitching as baubles and streamers on a tree and the second as antlers for the missing deer. Love your work.

That's an exciting stitch. It adds texture and it's organic.
It could be a branch or seaweed.

Queeniepatch said...

I worked quickly and had just a short spurt of fun.

You've got (rein)deer on your mind!

Excellent for plants both on land and under the sea.

Just like the Rambling Rose Stitch, you only need a few short strands and can make a great spiky line.
Have fun!

You can see why it is called thorn stitch
