Sunday Stitch School. Lesson 85.

No 85. Wrapped Cross stitch, on Aida.
A simple stitch that just needs careful wrapping.  Mine’s a bit wobbly and the last is unfinished due to the fabric width. Thread used is Perle 8

These crosses are added to a CQ block above the Tied Herringbone- No. 77 lesson

Fun adding to a doodle cloth. 2 strands of DMC in green and yellow.

One larger green and pink DMC 2 strands.

and lastly using up surplus fancy thread ends.  This began with the blue cross on the left side and kept growing.  The DMC sat better than the fancy type.

 

This stitch and so far, another 84 stitches can be found here 

Queenie generously shares her lessons with anyone interested in learning new and old stitches.

  1. Beautiful stitching Maureen. 🙂 ×

  2. Kind words, Barbara but I think it could be a bit tidier. :-))

  3. I take my hat off to you! I thought this a very boring stitch, and could not wait to finish my homework. You on the contrary, have worked hard, and the result is FAR better than mine.

  4. I must have been in a relaxed and fun mood as the stitches were easy for me.

  5. I must have missed the fact that you’re working on a doodle cloth – I like that idea. Another new-to-me stitch this time too.

  6. I’ve several doodle cloths on the go but work is mainly on the Sunday Stitch School and Beyond TAST 2019
