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.



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

  2. je mets à jour les derniers points
    (j'ai été absente tout le mois de janvier)

    - 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
    Voilà,
    Mattia

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

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

    1. 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.

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

    1. 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.
