Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 61 - 65

It is time for Sunbonnet Sue to come out and play with the most recent five stitches taught at Sunday Stitch School.

To see the instructions and read previous blog posts, click on the heading for each stitch.

61 Raised Fishbone Stitch
As it is a raised stitch it gives a plump look, good for 3D embroidery and, if worked in a straight line,  filling in any space. It can be used both to make thick leaves or a nice rope like braid.

62 Pearl Stitch
Not difficult at all to make a nice knotted line with this knobby stitch.
A great advantage is that the knots are not really knots, so reverse stitching is not a knotty problem.

63 French Knotted Chain Stitch
The marriage between the Chain Stitch and the French Knot must be celebrated!
Just remember to  use a hoop, then it is easy to make, and will look good in a straight line or on a curve.

64 Madam Totsuka's Tasselled Chain
Here is a fiddly stitch that grows on you - the more you make, the easier it gets and the more you like them.
You can keep them as they are, or cut open the loops.

65 Rosette Stitch Rose
One can never have too many floral stitches. This will make a nice bud, the centre of any flower or indeed a rose. Also, as has been pointed out, they can look like coffee beans or balls of knitting yarn. So, both useful and easy.

Use the five stitches on this Sunbonnet Sue design.
Cheat by using crayon and molding mat.

There's a good teaser. I'm looking forward to seeing Sue in her latest adventure.

I, too, look forward to seeing what Sue is up to this time.

The stitches are perfect for flowers so you will see some of those.

I like how you off-set the Rosette stitch Rose on the sampler. I hope Sue is quickly outfitted with this group of interesting stitches.

Sue us getting ready to do her 'thing'.

I'll start the stitching tonight.

I have just started on her clothes and am enjoying using the selected stitches.

I like the plump blue leaf.

In the next set of five stitches I will include the Fishbone Stitch which should be flatter. It will be fun to compare the two.

I love the way you’ve made her dress using the moulding mat and crayons. So original!
