THE STITCH FILES – Backstitch

What a great name and what a fabulous new way for organizing my lessons on stitches.

It is all thanks to Sharon from Pintangle who has started this and to learn all about it please visit here.  Sharon’s generosity is boundless.

The files Sharon offers are free and suitable for beginners.

I started with Backstitch and here is the official page with my sampler on it.

I used charts to Backstitch the purple diamond pattern and the thistle leaves.

I freehanded the rose bush, Yin Yan and bowl of oranges.

I don’t know the official name for the canvas but I counted 23 squares to one inch and used 2ply cottons.

Ahh, the rose stems were done with variegated crochet thread.

The thistle should have had  flowers but as I could not correctly lay the cross thread stems I left them out.

To get the stems in I would have had to stitch Into a dividing bar.  Would not work for me.    😦

Thanks Sharon, you are one in a million.
