Sunday Stitch School No. 157 Invented stitch – (cross)

I completed my homework with ease.

My apology for this post.
I had to make a correction for my stitch.

The stitch is an Invented -Cross -stitch I confused them when posting earlier.
Over on Queenie’s blog you can read about the reason the original stitch has become 3 variations.

For the top row, I used a variegated fine wool on Aida cloth. For the other two I worked on a sampler. I used a fine cord for the top row and two colours of perle 8 for the last row. The lesson for this first stitch is here -No.157


Responses

  1. The Invented Stitch really looks good when it is worked in variegated thread or alternating the stitches with a different colour.
    Well done.

    • Thank you Queenie for a delightful and easy stitch. I have already stitched a sample of the next version but not yet posted it.

  2. I always like crossed stitches, particularly ones that have a little ‘extra’ added on for additional interest.

    • The different method makes me concentrate and see there are other ways to embroider a stitch. ..and seeing other stitches can be altered also.

  3. I need to go check out the last couple of stitches. I am feeling the urge to hand stitch, and I have nothing here prepared. Your example is a good incentive.

  4. I’m happy to have helped out and hope you come up with some lovely ideas too.
