I recently started my stitch doodles book as a way to practice and learn new embroidery stitches while using up all the odds and ends of embroidery threads from other projects.
Pages have changed since the first post sharing this book. The cover has some doodling stitches and a title added.
The first page has some pieces that were previously stitched on a table cloth that never got finished. I haven’t quite finished yet and will add some stitch doodles between the blocks.
The second page has some stitches on it that I’ve been practising.
This is a view of the first and second pages.
A visitor to my site recommended Pintangle, and amazing site that explains different stitches and has a TAST – Take a Stitch Tuesday. This is when a stitch is explained, you practice it and share it (on your website, Instagram, Facebook). This is the sheaf stitch that I have been revisiting which was the TAST stitch to practice when I joined.
Other stitches I added.
It has been fun to revisit these various stitches and incorporate them into my stitch doodles book.
Edit: Thanks to all the visitors from the blog And Then We All Had Tea. I appreciate you stopping by. Have a good day.
I’m sharing this project with The Really Crafty Link Party, Slow Sunday Stitching, Mosaic Monday, Creative Crafts, and Creatively Crafty,

What a great idea! I love it!
I love the thought of an embroidery stitch doodle book. Yours is dancing with oodles of happy colour and fabulous design and embroideries. Such a fun book.
Thank you Kim, glad you stopped by for a visit.
I have been embroidering more lately and enjoyed seeing all of the great stitches that you have been practicing. I like your doodle book.
My Stitch Doodle book is lots of fun to work on, I’m enjoying revisiting some stitches and learning new ones. Thanks for stopping by today.
Your doodle stitch book is fabulous!

It’s such a lovely stitch book. Nice work.
so many stitches! I do some once in awhile but not often
I haven’t done embroidery for ages so have a renewed interest in it. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Sunday.
Your stitch book just looks more and more fun each time I see it! Such a good idea – I need to think about how I might do something like this. Do you draw out your design and then stitch over it?
Some of the patterns are freehand, some are traced. I recently got a light pad and it makes it so easy to trace a pattern with the heat pens (you can iron over when finished and the heat takes the ink away) A lot of the stitches are just straight line stitches so use a ruler and heat pen to draw the line, then sew and iron to remove the pen. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Sunday.
Beautiful stitching. I did TAST for several years. Sharon Boggan is the greatest! Hope you have a great week!
I have enjoyed the TAST, a great way to review or learn new stitches. Lots of inspiration on the Facebook page too. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Sunday.
This seems such a great idea!
Great way to try new stitches and practice! Your book is your own personal library of stitches
Fabulous embroidery, and what a super way to utilize extra floss/thread! Thanks so much for sharing with Mosaic Monday!
What a great idea. I should try to do this to brush up on types of stitches. It’s been a long time since I did embroidery!
I was inspired by your junk journal post and searched out some ideas, and saw the idea for a cloth book, so went from there. I have tried a bit of junk journaling in my zen-doodle and will share what I did soon. Right now I’ve been obsessed with the embroidery as I hadn’t done it for so long. Have a lovely day Diane, glad you stopped by.
