Once again I'm a little behind. It's a good thing we're not in a "real" class or Sharon would be making me stay after school for my tardiness!! But life is busy and my motto is "done is good". So better done and a little late, than not done at all...
This past week's stitch was Running stitch. A very basic stitch. I must admit, at first I was not too excited, but as always, once you get going, the ideas start to come.. You can do so much with just simple straight stitches and a little imagination!
Here is a my sampler for this stitch. In the second to fifth rows I experimented with some lacing as I have not done much of this... All my "base" stitches are perle cotton, mostly perle 5. I have laced with YLI Candlelight, a handdyed cotton, Pearl Crown Rayon and Caron Watercolors. The first and sixth to ninth rows are just simply playing around with a simple pattern in perle 5...
