A month of Sunday’s, plus one

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 

5 examples of Danish stitches

5 examples of Danish stitches

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.

  1. Bravo you! Very nice to see your sample!

    • Thanks Anneliese. I’m happy you like it

  2. And every section is beautifully made! I am especially impressed with the Back Stitch pattern.
    Anundsjö is a ‘free’ stitch and in my opinion the Danish Knot Stitch is, too, and the entry and exit points as well as the length of the base stitch can be varied freely.
    I feel so honoured that you have taken part in the lessons.

  3. The honour and pleasure of following your lessons, is all mine Queenie.
    The Backstitch pattern was on a placemat- or similar item and caught my eye.

  4. Very beautiful sampler of SSS stitches. very neat and it is pleasure to look at this sampler. love the pattern worked in back stitch

    • Thank you very much Chitra. The Backstitch pattern was a favourite of mine too.
