Sunday Stitch School. Stitches 72,73 and 74

I have been away for several weeks but am now up to date with my SSS stitches.

Some interesting stitches lately, from Queenie

The top row is No 72. Sham Hem stitch.  I used a navy perle thread for the Herringbone part and wove a purple Brazilian thread around the points.

The second row shows No 73,  God’s Eye.  The long tailed cross is in yellow perle 8 and the weaving in pink perle 8 also.
The third row is No 74- Boucle.  I had trouble with this fiddly stitch, keeping it neat.  I used variegated perle 8   Perhaps I should give it another chance to behave for me.

Here is  the Sham Hem on a CQ block.  Again I used Brazilian thread but it tended to untwist.  Maybe I had the thread back to front to cause this.

I do like the God’s Eye stitch.  Perle 8 was used for all patterns.

I just crossed the green at the centre and added arms at the outer edge.  I wove the middle part first.

The red/green one had the long legs almost touching in the middle and when I wove the 4 outer edges I found it looked like there was a 5th weaving.  There was none.

I’m sorry the photos are not so good.

  1. Gorgeous sampling Maureen , some of these stitches I’ve never seen before 🙂 x 👏👏👏

    • Thanks, Barbara. I hadn’t seen the God’s Eye before.

  2. I love the purple flower burst. Definitely would be a lovely addition in your garden scenes.

    • Thanks, Diane. I liked that arrangement too. The green/red is worth playing with further.

  3. I’m thinking that top stitch might be a good place to use the rayons that are so pretty, but I don’t like stitching with them. With that winding, they shouldn’t shred. Your stitches are gorgeous, and I’m impressed with your Boucle stitches, especially.

  4. Nice assortment once again. I’ve never heard of the sham hem stitch so will have to do some research on how to make it.
