couching, (somehow missed this one when I added previously)
barred chain and alternating barred chain
crossed buttonhole stitch
half chevron stitch
So glad to have caught up. I think had I given these samples more thought I would have worked them on an evenweave fabric which I am more at home with, my first love being the hardanger technique.
Now, I am glad that I did them in this way as it has made me want to do more embroidery using this method. I would like to stitch some more intricate designs based on gardens.Not sure when I will get around to this however.
