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.
