Today is Tuesday and oh my is it ever WINDY out! The temp isn't bad but you must hold on to your hat.
Yesterday I sat down with a scrap of linen and tried out a few stitches. I can't tell you the count of the fabric but that wasn't important here. I ripped a page out of an old magazine that showed how to do many different kinds of stitches.
It was a learning experience..........
There were a couple that I really wouldn't care to try again and a few that I enjoyed stitching. I think I like the eyelet stitch best. It took me a little while to get the queen stitch right but that one is pretty too. The daisy stitch is usually one I have no problem with but on this linen I kept pulling the end of the petal through the fabric. The same with the french knots. I like making them but just not on this fabric.
There were a couple stitches on there that made me cross-eyed by just trying to read the directions and follow the little arrows.
It was a learning experience. I'm sure a project somewhere down the road will call for a couple of these. They really are very pretty once mastered.
Do you have a favorite or least favorite stitch?
