Take a Stitch Tuesday [weeks 5 to 9]

Continued from yesterdays post......

week 5 Knotted Buttonhole Stitch
My plan was to see what stitch was in the challenge & then do it at a later date from a book as my sewing stuff was downstairs.... but not all the stitches are in my book [thought it was a good one too, having said that there are hundreds of different stitches]. Anyway in my book there is a different version of the stitch above and the knot is at the other end. So I now have sewing stuff in this room too and I followed Sharons instructions instead, which incidently are very good.

week 6 Buttonhole Eyelet Flower
week 7 Rope Stitch
week 8 Fancy Hem Stitch
for some reason I did this twice, which I didn't realise until I was putting them in the book .. I worry about my memory sometimes
And this is todays challenge - Raised herringbone Band
I deleted the picture because it wasn't very good, it will be on my next post

  2. Thanks for the great idea to combine altered book or printed journal and embroidered samples. You really sparked my creativity!
