Sunday Stitch School – another catch-up

The central stitch here is No 81.Reversed Fly.  On the outsides is No 83.Mennonite Tack stitch. Threads used are 2 strands of variegated Garden Cottage Thread for Rev. Fly and the Mennonite Tack is done with Brazilian Lola.

No.82 is Bokhara stitching.  I used 4 strands of DMC.

This effort is not neat at all.
I can’t say I’d ever take up making cushions with this stitch.

The purple marks should have been removed before posting.  I need only a warm iron to the back of the work to make them disappear.  I used a Frixon pen.

 

 

This stitch was fun.  No.84 Star Darn stitch. I used fine green metallic thread and Sassa Lynne variegated.

 

 

Below are some old samples of Reversed Fly stitch that I did using Sharon Boggon’s Modules.

There are lots of ways to play with this stitch.

  1. Another nice assortment of stitches – and interesting threads too. I’m seriously toying with doing a version of Sharon’s TAST next year but wonder if I’ll get started and then interest will wane before the year is over. Decisions, decisions!

  2. The Reversed Fly Stitch has so many faces, you can fool anyone who does not look really closely at how the stitch is made and then see the two ‘flies’.
    You have used interesting threads throughout.
    Bokhara IS the most difficult of these four stitches. A grid is useful, waste canvas or Aida…

  3. Thanks for your replies on the stitch, Mary Anne and Queenie. I’ve been absent with family for Christmas – no computer, so I’m late replying.

  4. I especially like the reversed fly stitches in the blue and the one with the soft yarn. Such beautiful things with a simple stitch!
