my stab at Sharon’s stitch along

So time has proven TIF is kinda too much for me at the moment. All it does is make me start more wips I don’t have time or energy to finih really. Sorry for that. I know I have to stop being this haphazard. So i decided to sign up for something actually doable for me, that would be Sharon’s new challenge, stitch along. All you have to do is try out stitches from a list. I decided to do something really basic and quick this time. So I got 1 meter of this prefabricated aida band. I hemstitched both ends because on such a small scale, this is less of a hazzle than hauling out the sewing machine for me. On second thought, I should have done nun stitch and a fringe on the lower end, it’s on the list, after all. Well I still can undo the hem and go this route if I really want to.

This is not going to be a real sampler, more of a doodle cloth. Probably I’ll roughly do the stitches alphabetically, but I’ll leave out the pulled stitches for now and everything else that doesn’t work on Aida. Also I might leave out stitches I have explored in depth before. This is about learning, not about showing off I guess.

Well, here is the to end. I wahted to stitch “stitch along” on top, then realized that this might be an unfair case of starting early, since chain stitch is on the list either.

    the width of adia band is a great for a sampler lilke this. when i did a sampler it was wider and i kept getting bored by the end o fthe row. I havent even thought about how i’ll do the stitch-along, not a good sign that I will start and /or finish it! I’m haphazard with my challenge stuff too

    My samplers usually ended up being a wild jumble of patches and rows in different directions because I got bored from straight rows – let’s see how I’ll do on this one! This is the small siza aida band, I’m posting a size tomorrow when I can find a ruler, in fact I wanted a broader one but couldn’t find it at the shops near main station and had no tome for shopping arround.
