With several Christmas gifts to complete and the necessity to clean the craft room first, I lagged behind with stitching Queenie’s weekly lessons.
Week 1. 1st row, shows 2 variations of Anundsjö stitch
Week 2, 2nd row, Back Stitches. I happened to find a magazine with the pattern while clearing the craftroom.
Week 3, 3rd row, Cross stitch..
Week 4, 4th row, Danish Knot In checking Queenie’s method I see mine is not quite the same . I used a book by Mildred Graves Ryan and the entry and exit points are on different levels.
Week 5, last row, Ermine stitch
Worked on 14ct Aida the stitching was easy. I used a small hoop for the Backstitching but otherwise held firmly in my hand. I used cotton threads – perle 8(pinks) finer yellow, the white was crochet thread and the green, a cotton with a tighter twist.
OH, the first few Back-stitches are too long on the arrowhead bit. I removed them twice and the third time left them as a reminder Not to do that again. Were it anything but a sampler just for me, I would have corrected it. The last section is correct.
