Today I have made an effort to complete the tast for 2012. I am posting 4 stitches. week 48 arrowhead stitch I did a few weeks ago but neglected to post and have now done week 49 buttonhole eyelet flower a very mean offering, I usually love bullion stitches but struggled here, now think it was because the fabric I had dyed was too stiff and thick well that is my excuse anyway! The the needle and thread was very difficult to pull through the cloth. Week 50 berry stitch, two flowers here and the brown piece is meant to be a dog, maybe if you screw up your eyes a bit a dog might emerge! Week 51 knotted cable chain stitch, this I have done with 4 different threads,the wool one is cascade yarns, green perle cotton and two troublesome rayon type threads, have not mastered the technique with these they are so slippery, the perle is my favourite thread followed closely by flower thread which I am loath to use as it is no longer available so saving for special projects!!
knotted cable chain, berry stitch and buttonhole eyelet stitch.
I hope to more stitches when the tast starts again and take the stitches further than I have done before, very much a rushed job at times apologies for not doing them justice.
