Sampler 5 -The Next Part

For the lack of other content, I’m showing the next part of the last strip sampler I finished, the 5th one in my collection. You have seen this part before, I think, when I talked about those TAST stitches. The first pattern strip is beaded feathered chain stitch, in this case the chain part was beaded. The last band is also beaded feathered chain stitch with the chain part beaded, only worked closer together. In between, there is beaded buttonhole stitch.

The thick lines are a form of interlaced chain stitch, which will be featured in stitch sunday soonish.

Usually I am not big on beading, but there were a few TAST stitches that left me no choice, and I have to say I did enjoy it and will probably use beads some more on the next samplers.

Stitch Sunday Break and Inspiration

Some people found my stitch challenge just now and are busy figuring out if and how they should take part. In order to give them a fair chance, this week is a break week everyone can use to get ready for stitching or even begin to catch up. Next week, there will be a new stitch. This time, one that is not a feathered chain variant.

But, this posting is also called stitch sunday inspiration. The little embroidery I show you is in fact the next section of sampler 5. I left this space blank and filled it later because it was supposed to be pictorial rather than rows of stitches. You saw how to do the stones before. later I added layers of feathered chain and woven/buttonholed chain.

Sampler, Part 4

Now here is the fourth posting about my current sampler, which is the fifth one I started. Here you can read a bit about my sampler project. By clicking here or on the sampler5 tag on any post belonging to it, you can see all the posts about this sampler. In this piece, I show flowers made from detatched chain variations. Especially whipped long tail chain and beaded long tail chain which were TAST stitches. The  lines below the flowers are variants of feathered chain stitches, they are either used to couch another thread or whipped. piece of a sampler


Sampler, Part 3

OK, I guess the text of these posts gets boring, but I have no idea how to make that un-boring (is this even a word?)

So here we go. This section shows some more TAST stitches, buttonhole wheel cup, and some other buttonhole wheel variant, namely whipped and woven buttonhole wheels.

The last row is my take on beaded feathered chain stitch.

Sampler, Part 2

So here is the next part of my sampler. You see chain stitches as lines and a row of feathered chain stitch. Next, there is field full of buttonhole wheels. The next lilac lines are back stitch variations. Then there is more feathered chain stitch and beaded feathered chain stitch.

These were stitches from Sharon’s challenge, take a stitch tuesday. The last line shows a variant of feathered chain stitch that is different from hers.

My Latest Sampler

I miss embroidery of late, so I dug out one of my unfinished samplers. I found it needs some serious finishing work. I was made from a commercial linen band that is supposed to be ready to use. But…. the drawn thread seams are already coming loose. So, I have no choice but sew around it again in drawn thread stitch. And believe me, these days I do have other passtimes than endless hours of mindless sewing. So, chances are I’ll use some fabric from my stash again next time, when I have to do this anyway I can as well save some money. Since TAST, the old one stitch a week challenge by Sharon Bogon, is on hold now and has been so for some time I’ll have to decide how to proceed, until I’m done with the drawn thread work I will just document what I already have done last year. So this is what the seam of this band looked like after embroidering the band normally. post11-5-15-2 and this is how it looks after working ordinary drawn thread stitch over it. By the way, here I have shown how to do this. post11-5-15-3 And now there is the first part of the sampler, after finishing work was done at this part. I know, this is one of the parts of the sampler you have seen before, but I want to show it from beginning to end this time. post11-5-15-1
