Sunday Stitch School – catch up

I seem to be running backwards lately but finally caught up with the last 6 stitches.  All interesting and after a little thought, for two of them, they were no bother.

Here they are on my Aida sampler.


No. 125 Carina’s Knot stitch..good for the centre of flowers…and no doubt has more potential

No. 126 Sydd Tofs stitch.  Very simple to create and it is cute at the end.  I can see several ways to add this to needlework.  The size can be varied.

No. 127 Amadeus stitch.  This needed thought to manage the twist and width placement but a joy once mastered.

No 128 Four Legged stitch.  Easy peasy!  I used perle thread for this stitch.

No 129 Olga’s Petal . After having mastered the Amadeus stitch this was easy and I love both.

 

 

 

As these stitches were worked on different cloths I will point them out in numerical order.
The yellow flowers on the left photo are
No. 125 Carina’s Knot, which can look like an eye depending on how it’s used.
No. 126 Sydd Tofs are easy to see on the right photo ..like a rabbit tail.
No. 127 Amadeus stitch in purple thread.  The placement was not as easy on plain cloth as it was on Aida.  I used a removable marking pen here.
No. 128 Four Legged stitch – on the right side -this time with silk ribbon
No. 129 Olga’s Petal stitch..  Our teacher had a coloured cloth in the centre of her Petal.  Very pretty.
No. 130 Antwerp Edging. In blue at the bottom of the left photo.
…hmm, I blame myself for not concentrating on this little stitch but finally, after frustrating minutes, got it right.  I’d been using the needle movement upside down.

Thanks Queenie for the great lessons.

If anyone is interested in learning any of the stitches, here is the link.

  1. I am so glad you enjoyed these stitches. You have made a very neat sampler and then used the stitches to full capacity on your crazy quilt block. Olga’s Petals really do look good for floral embroidery, makes me think of exotic orchids or some bug eating flower in the jungle.

    • Maybe Olga’s petal is carnivorous. :-))

      • Wouldn’t surprise me!

  2. wow, job you did with them!these are super stitches…have never seen them before! and what a great h

    • Thanks KTJ. I am learning many new stitches at the Sunday Stitch School.

  3. I very much like that Olga’s petal stitch. That would be so pretty in any floral bouquet or sewn as you have done it in the second photo. I’m going to try that one, if I ever again get to stitch anything.

    • It is a lovely stitch and I hope you find time to try it, Susan
