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.
This flower is worked in back stitch and satin stitch in perle cotton #8.
These circles are worked in back stitch with perle cotton#8.
After working the buttonhole stitches the space between is filled with chain stitch and satin stitch. these threads are cotton skein and perle cotton.
This floral spray is worked with stem stitch filling, fly stitch and stem stitch outline, some seed stitch filling and satin stitches.
Straight stitches were added to the satin fly stitched leaf.
Some more samples are to be worked in this page.
This past week was pretty exciting on embroidery workwise. The embroidery on chanderi tunic was done up to this point. More chain stitches were worked in dark brown thread
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.
I am working on this fabric book, on which the pages comprise of free style embroidery and TAST challenge stitches. The first week’s stitch is Fly. In this sample, the fly stitch rows are worked in a semicircle with different colours and threads.
The fly stitches and stem stitches are worked to on a filling pattern.
Fly stitches are worked over satin stitched leaf.
This tiny sample is worked in fly stitch variation. The two straight stitches are looped, similar to wheat ear stitch. They are worked in quarter circle.
These edges were completed today on this week’s RPW2015 challenge. both these edges are lovely. The free graph for these edges are here.
With these edges the second part of this sampler is completed. Another colour combination has to be chosen for the next part. The second part.
I am working on embroidery sampler book. These fabric pages will have free style embroidery and TAST 2015 stitches on them. The first page has fly stitch, the first stitch on TAST 2015 challenge. The working of which is on Sharon’s blog.
In this sample fly stitches are worked horizontally in two directions and two shades.
The fly stitches worked in a circle are woven in this sample and the centre is filled in french knots
Fly stitch rows worked in two shades drift down towards the centre.
The idea of working a sampler book is slowly progressing. The basic idea is to work embroidery on 6inches by 6 inches square. The stitches are a combination of TAST stitches and other embroidery stitch treatments. These other embroidery samples are inspired by the works seen on the internet and some of my ideas. All these notions are more in mind at this point. With the help of the online classes taken with Sharon, I am trying to build one embroidery page at a time. When the TAST rerun was announced, I thought of working this idea as a personal challenge.
Page1- I have started this page with fly stitches. Continuous fly stitches worked in zigzag pattern.
Fly stitch filling, worked in fine silk thread.
The same filling work in perle cotton. This filling idea is inspiration from needle point stitches.
Fly stitches are worked around a circle and are whipped in the centre.
