Beautiful! Very well done. I especially like how it looks on linen.
The linen is so nice to stitch on.
Interesting. Back in the corners of my mind, I seem to remember learning about tramming as a quick way to mark colors (using just the long horizontal stitch)on a needlepoint canvas before selling it to the customer who would complete the actual stitches.
Yes, that seems to have been popular instead of marking the canvas with paint. I really like the way the stitches get padded by the underlying thread.
Yes, I like the linen fabric too, it naturally sets the stitches off at their best.Great stitching Queenie, the tram Is a good way of getting a raised look.
The Tramming looks to be a sturdy stitch and has a nice appearance also. I think designs in the stitch would look terrific.
Trammed tent stitch is a good, sturdy stitch for useful objects!
I will definitely use this technique again, and with other stitches, too.
I think that if you first prepared a design with the Tramming stitches on the canvas and then stitched Trimmed Cross Stitch, you would get a very hardwearing and rich result.
It does give the fabric a lot of extra strength.
