WIPW - Waste Canvas

Even in the extreme heat time passes quickly, and I must leave my Work In Progress Wednesday report.

Sunday Stitch School Stitch Sampler

It was time for some canvas stitches. To get a reasonably good grid I used waste canvas to guide the needle.

First I added a smattering of individual canvas stitches shooting out of the cornucopia. For each of them there will then be a block, filling up a square or rectangle.

#217 Simplified Rice Stitch (light blue), #206 Rapid Stitch (blue) and #22 Vault Stitch (green). 


  1. Since seeing how waste canvas was used in Norwegian stitching to do traditional designs I have realised it is a great aid to ones stitching. Looks good on your work too.

  2. Those square pieces are interesting. Looking forward to seeing the outcome.

  3. Yes, that waste canvas can be really useful!

  4. I'd never have considered using waste canvas. Great idea!
