I know that as an embroiderer I should be exploring and practicing various embroidery stitches, but I am not so disciplined. I tend to explore a particular stitch when I actually need it for a certain project, and only then I have a trial run on a separate piece of fabric. It also has a lot to do with how much time you have.
I few years ago I did stitch a small sampler, but what to do with it after I finished it? And how do I remember the names of the stitches?
So I photocopied the whole sampler onto a piece of paper and wrote on the names of the stitches,
and I rolled up both together into a scroll.
