14 satin stitch

These embroidery exercises are very interesting. I started on the second page on the embroidery sampler book.
The first detail was worked in detached chain stitches and french knots.

After working a few rows of satin stitches on this leaf motif, back stitches are used to work the outline and the lines on satin stitches.

Back stitch is used on this small leaf motif.



After working a few more motifs in satin stitch I completed this stitch sampler. More designs are available on the downloaded books.
Along with the floral , the border pattern also captured my interest.

The idea of working satin stitch sampler with these antique patterns came when this stitch was part of the challenge on stitchin fingers. I did not work on it at that time. With this TAST 2012 challenge, I took the opportunity to make use of those patterns.

I started with some floral motifs worked in satin stitch today. These motifs are all from the pdf file downloaded from antique pattern library site.
These patterns were part of borders, fillers. I chose to do the motifs alone.
