Friday Homework for Lesson 70: Puffy Couching

The heat makes it hard to come up with any fancy designs so I just did my homework straight up:

Sunday Stitch School Reference Chart:

Aida Sampler:


Teal Wool Tailoring Scribble Cloth:

Next Sunday will be a holiday, so no Revision of Stitches, nor any planning of Sunbonnet Sue.
Next week will therefore have no Friday Revision Homework, either.
Let's have a summer break!

The Puffy Couching looks nice on your scribble cloth! Love the colours you used.
Enjoy your break.

Enjoy your summer break!

I would worry about some of those puffy strings getting pulled out of line ... like toe-grabbers on a quilt.

Yes, enjoy your break, that sounds like a good idea.
Nice stitching and I like the orange thread couching down the light blue
thread.

It looks very neat on the Aida sampler.

I think the red couching thread looks good on the light blue wool.

It is just a break from blogging obligations! Work, nursing care, and hopefully some stitching will continue.

Queeniepatch said...

You are right, this is purely a decorative stitch and should not be on anything 'useful' as the strings will risk being pulled out of line.

I think the orange red thread was a good choice for the couching.
I will take a rest from the computer, but will try to find time to stitch.

It looks better than I expected.

Thank you, but it is only a break from writing blog posts! I still have work and chores to do .

This is so cute, I really like the blue line on the Aida, I think this would make a beautiful trim on the edge of an ornament 😊

I don't know how well this would work with a metallic or stiff thread, but the effect would be 'burlesque', don't you think?
It is rather easy to pull the threads out of place, so it should be used for 'see-but-don't-touch' ornaments only.
