stitch combinations


I had started working on this challenge, but it was not easy for me. After keeping it aside for a while, the sampler was started again.
Today’s explorations started with 3 rows of back stitch. lacing was done on these rows.

The second sample is similar lacing to the first one, except the first row was buttonhole stitch.

The third sample has weaving stitch between two chain stitches in red variegated thread.

Started this sample with two rows of arrowhead variation.

The lacing was over these stitches. It looks like detached herringbone stitch though.

After working two rows of arrowhead stitches, cross stitches were worked in the centre.

The lacing was done passing through the arrowhead stitches and cross stitches.

Two days ago I started this linear stitch study sampler. Still not sure the way to explore these linear stitches.
Started with back stitch.
BTAST18-5-1a
Double back stitch, whipped back stitch, working crosses in between back stitches are the variations here.

How to fill a shape with free style Cretan stitches was tried in the second sample.

May be some decorative borders can be tried with these linear stitches.
The linear stitches worked on this sample are- herringbone, buttonhole and chain stitches.
BTAST18-5-3
The centre is worked in coral stitch, with two rows of running stitches and stem stitch outlines are worked  in this sample.
BTAST18-5-4
The base is Cretan stitch, with fly stitches in this sample, after outlining both sides with closed buttonhole stitch variation, worked rope stitches in light blue thread.

The idea of working decorative borders with linear stitches might work.
