Stitch-wheel Sampler

Over the weekend I managed to stitch the three new stitches from Cathy Reavy’s Stitch-wheel Sampler. This is a stitch-a-long on Youtube, she’s now got a facebook page too so we can see how everyone else is stitching the samples and admire all the different colourways.

I’ve stitched the samples close together on the wheel this time,rather than spread out like Cathy’s, for ease of photography!

This week we did woven roses which I’ve stitched many times before but I realise now that I really didn’t pack the stitches in enough, you get a much nicer rounded appearance if you go round a few more times!

Battlement couching (the squared sort of one) and burden stitch were both new to me. Burden stitch was interesting to learn as it’s actually stitched over lines of thread, almost like a regulated long and short stitch.

The second ring is filling up nicely now, I reckon another two weeks and we’ll be onto the last ring which I think is going to be outline stitches. I’m already thinking of using the stitches I’ve learnt on projects I’m planning.

The next few stitches are due out on Thursday, so watch this space!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    I am ready to start that ring on my sampler, so it is good to see what is coming up for me. Learning filler stitches will be very handy.
