This last set of details were worked today on this embroidery stitch sampler book. The first page is completed. I started with the idea of Zentangles type designs to work the embroidery details on this page. Page-1

Detailing these embroidery samples on this fabric book is like writing a daily journal. One or two samples are worked and pictures are taken during the day. Evenings are for writing the details. This is the routine. Though the stitches are simple, some focus and dedication are prerequisite for the actual embroidery work. It is really interesting learning like this.
These leaf shapes are worked in satin stitches- with cotton skein and fine silk thread in the centre.

Somebody had mentioned that today is world embroidery day.

Happy embroidery day to All!

In this fabric sampler book, on each page I am embroidering the TAST stitches along with some embroidery samples. These samples are a record of embroideries I have found interesting on the internet and are some of my own ideas.

I have started working on the first page of the fabric sampler book. It is harder to work than I had anticipated. The idea to stitch the book in this manner seems good. The embroidery ideas are chosen from samples which were interesting for me. This is exciting. But it is not so easy to decode the stitches that are used on these samples. It takes time. So, they are worked spaced with exploring other ideas. The TAST stitches also are experimented in this sampler. With all the inspiration from the facebook page, it is very stimulating to work on these stitches. The posts on this stitch sampler are here.

In the free style sample book, I am working on the first page. After working on some fly stitch ideas, a space in between the patterns was worked in buttonhole stitches.
The half buttonhole wheels are worked in two threads. And angled buttonhole stitches are worked facing each other and the one of them is whipped with another thread.
