Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 41 - 45


Sunday Stitch School has been running for more than a year now. 45 stitches have been learned so far.

Once again it is time for another revision lesson to sum up the last five stitches, which have all been related to plants.

Click on the headline to see instructions and homework.

41 Thorn Stitch
Easy and quick, it adds a lot of 'spike' to a line.


42 Rambling Rose Stitch
It is just as lovely as a real rambling rose. This stitch, too, is quick and easy.


43 Moss Stitch
The moss stitch is named well, some species of moss really look like this!
Making the knotty part is a bit fiddly, but it is worth it as the knot stands out so well in the middle.
Work it in black and you have an insect instead.


44 Mille Fleur
Lazy Daisy, Lazy Diasy, Lazy Daisy.... give me your needle do, (and some thread, too) I'm half crazy all for the love of you....
It IS a lovely stitch, it WON'T drive you crazy, not even half crazy. Instead when used in a circle you have a nice flower.
What's more, you don't need to stitch while on a bicycle built for two!

45 Leaf Stitch
If you make a flower, you will most likely need a leaf, too. Here is a nice one.

Homework:
Use the five stitches above to full advantage on this Sunbonnet Sue sampler, already drawn and coloured with crayon.

  5. I've been remiss with the lessons and will either have to catch up this year or it's back to the beginning next year, for me.
    Your samples are lovely as usual. I'm sure Sue will be decked out well for her next appearance.

    1. Oh, she might be scantily clad!
      You can skip any or all of the stitches - no compulsory work here!
