Sewing in the cabin.

Product DetailsProduct Details

Today I popped to the library to pick up the book I ordered, Stitch at Home by Mandy Shaw. This is her second book, her first was Stitch with Love. Both books are good but I have decided to do a project or two from this book.

The first project I want to try is; Sampler Picture, this sampler is all embroidery, but to start with I must practise the stitches required. I remember doing some embroidery at school many moons ago, so to complete this project I must do a quick refresher course.

So I have decided that each day I am going to practise a stitch, this is the list I need to practise;
  • Back Stitch
  • French Knots
  • Cross Stitch
  • Chain Stitch
  • Running Stitch
  • Satin Stitch
  • Blanket Stitch
  • Lazy Daisy Stitch
These are the stitches I would like to learn;
  • Herringbone Stitch
  • Stem Stitch
  • Feather Stitch
  • Fern Stitch
  • Couching stitch
Some of the stitch I can do, but it does not hurt to practise. So tomorrow I will start at the beginning with Back Stitch. Also I shall show you the picture I want to sew for the cabin.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon, keep sewing or join me tomorrow in a Back stitch lesson............
