WIPW - Adding Stitches As I Go

Time for another Work In Progress Wednesday report.

There is some progress on my holiday free form embroidery, not much, but it has been enjoyable to stitch at a slow pace.

 This is my scribbling so far.

The swirls were made with a new stitch, which has not been, but will be, added to the Sunday Stitch School. It is called Quaker Stitch. More on that later.
The variegated line is composed of short Buttonhole Bars.

In the third field from the left we have Sorbello Stitch, then there is a line of Open Chain Stitch with French Knots in light purple, and the last section is filled with Long Tailed Lazy Daisy Stitch.

The final additions are from the Chain Stitch family - a line of Chain Stitch (at the top) which will be transformed into Satin Chain Stitch when I add 'legs'.
Underneath is a line of Cable Chain Stitch, and at the bottom we have Magic Chain Stitch, part of the line has a colour change for every other stitch and for the rest I stitched two blue and two green and then repeated the pattern.

Now what stitch will I use to fill in the void? Another kind of Chain Stitch?

More progress to report next Wednesday - I hope.
Until then I will engross in embroidery books in local libraries in search of stitches to add to Sunday Stitch School.


  1. This looks very fun to stitch.

  2. Well, you have a lot more to show for your Wednesday than I. Now in the midst of Vacation Bible School, there is not much time for any stitching and the end of the day is recovering from the trip into town and back and preparing the games for the next day. No chance to sit on the train, so not even any piecing...

  3. There are certainly others in the Chain Stitch family...!

  4. Wow! Queenie, this looks terrific!
    I was contemplating my next stitching project and thought I’d use cross stitch, but seeing your lovely stitches today has totally stopped me in my tracks. I hope I can stitch my new idea before my deadline - end of August - tee hee!
    I love the colours you have used too!

  5. Not much! A lot more than me and lovely stitching at the.

  6. I'm glad you're enjoying your stitching, looking good.
