Embroidery: Stitch Book Progress

posted in: Embroidery, Stitching | 20

I continue to enjoy working on my stitch book. This week I practiced the woven wheel stitch and the bouillon stitch. I’m not sure they are exactly as described but they are certainly my version and look just about the same.

This is page 5 in the book, my flower garden page. Since last week I have added flowers in bouillon stitch and woven wheel stitch, plus I stitched the dragonfly. The dragonfly and ladybugs were inspired by some bug patterns by StitchGothica. I did shrink the images a bit and used different colours.

The rainbow has also been completed since last week in chain stitch.

Page 7 has two small cross stitch pieces that I completed awhile ago. I never knew how or where to display them but now they have a place in the stitch book. This page is truly doodle stitching as I used up bits of embroidery thread and different stitches. More to come on this page as I get more bits and pieces of thread. A stitch doodle here and a stitch doodle there.

I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.

    This book is so interesting.
    I made one with knitting patterns and put them in a notebook. I was just learning to knit and it was very helpful. When I moved the book got lost in packing or somewhere else. Some of my other craft things are missing also. Oh well that is life. Thankful I have Jo Ann fabric to buy some of the things.
    Again I really enjoy your website.

    So sad to hear Queen Elizabeth passing away. She was a great lady.

    Your stitching book is so fun to see each week! I learned the Woven Wheel stitch just recently, and love that one – the bouillon stitch not so much. I really love your rainbow!

      Thank you Debbie. I’ll stop by your site to see what decorating you have been up to this week. I got my fall table cloth and runner out and added fall flowers to the mantle. Have a good week.

    I really like the variety of stitches you are working with in your pretty stitch book. I think it is wonderful that you found a way to incorporate those two small cross-stitch pieces. Enjoy all of your stitching.
