I’m still playing catch up, but I had a productive afternoon in front of Harrogate Railway vs. Mansfield in the FA cup – as well as spotting my future father-in-law in the crowd (not a huge crowd I have to say!), I also worked my way through lesson two.
I wanted to try all of the stitches Sharon listed, so design wasn’t really a priority – I like the idea of keeping the sampler in my sewing box for inspiration!
I worked my way through the list of stitches:
starting with triple chain stitch butterflies at the bottom
A little pattern with double fly stitch and french knots over on the right
A crown stitch pattern on the left
I played about with some detached chain flowers up at the top
A circle of detached chain in the middle
A whipped long armed chain top right
Tulip stitch up at the top – I made a little man which I think is quite cute!
there’s also some moss and berry stitch on there somewhere
And finally a woven picoult flower which I’m also rather proud of!
I’ll try and get week three’s lesson started this week!
