stitches

It was when I was reading on Gudrun's blog that she has joined My Stitches blog, where they are exploring various stitches, I remembered my scroll.
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.

  1. Thats a good idea Radka. I think we forget stitches unless we use them frequently. Perhaps we have our favourite ones and return to them time and time again. Anne

  5. This is a brilliant idea to photocopy the stitches and put their names on the paper. That's certainly the thing which I have to do!

  7. Radka, what a good idea. I would never have thought of something so practical!! I love the way you've attached your sampler to the dowel and made a nice little scroll out of it. It is also nice to see you've kept to one colour whilst playing.
