Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 46 - 50

After a bit of a break it is time to sum up the five last Sunday Stitch School Stitches we have learned.

Click on each headline to see the instructions and homework report.

46 Corded Coral Stitch

Easy to do and an interesting linear stitch.

47 Two-sided Insertion Stitch

Such a pretty stitch, and it looks good on the back as well!

48 Detached Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch

Easy and fun. Good for both filling in areas and making a nice braided line.

49 Colonial Knot

This knotted stitch is not that different from French Knots in its look, but I think it sits steadier on the fabric.
The hand movement is very relaxing and you will soon work up speed.

50 Bayeux Stitch

This is a nice filling stitch with long history. It can be used to fill in any design, as Chitra has proved.

Make a Sunbonnet Sue sampler, of course. Key expressions are Cold winter and maybe something relating to Korea?
Use your imagination.

Nice review.I'm curious to see what you come up with, maybe something to do with the Olympics?

je mets à jour les derniers points

- 48 - point de feston filet mais je ne suis pas sûre
Dans le M. Thomas la boucle est en dessous et non au dessus
il y a différents noms pour le même point

- 49 - point de nœud colonial

- 50 - point de Bayeux

I'm looking forward to see how you combine these stitches on your next Sue.

All of those stitches have great possibilities.
The design challenge begins!

I haven't tried the Baueaux stitch as yet. Thanks for sharing the video annnd Jizzee's wonderful fish, link.

They are all interesting textured stitches, aren't they!

Looking forward to seeing Sue

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, this time they show the variety there are in stitches - and these are all 'historical' ones that have been around a long time.

Queeniepatch said...

Although this stitch is associated with the famous tapestry, there is so much you can use it for.

Queeniepatch said...

They are all so different and prove to us that wide spectrum of stitches.

Her feet have been clad in #50, that much I can tell. you.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you for your information. I have updated the various blog posts.

It will be slow progress - the dresser is in bed with a cold!

It’s nice to see a reminder of these stitches. I didn’t visit the video the first time around so saw it today ..... all fascinating! I look forward to seeing the next Sue.
I hope your cold goes quickly!

Videos are a great way to see how a stitch is worked, and in this case to imagine how the tapestries were made.
The cold is here to stay it seems.

Sharrons book is good isn't it? This block is also good.

Thank you. Sharon has so much to teach and inspire us. The book is great, even for a non-stitcher. I'd say it is a coffee table book with all its eye candy.
