I had worked this stitch sampler during an earlier challenge. The method of working this stitch on Sharon’s blog. I have tried some stitch combination this time. Annet has also posted some of this stitch explorations on her blog.
Now for the details of this stitch sampler-
1.Two siennese stitches are worked together on the bar in this first row. I tried to work this stitch over the arrowhead stitches in the second row. This idea can be worked better! The third row has chain stitch over siennese stitches.
2. The first row of siennese stitches worked on both sides was taken from Annet’s idea. She has also drawn how it was worked. The second and third row have two ways of working siennese stitches over buttonhole stitch and basque stitch.
3.The siennese stitches are worked over- chevron stitch, cretan stitch and feather stitch variation.
4.Berry stitches are worked between siennese stitches in the first row, Pekinese stitch variation or lacing and pistil stitches are worked with siennese stitch in the second row and zigzag coral stitch and french knots are worked with siennese stitches in the third row.
This stitch sampler was completed with these stitch combinations.
The stitch was easy but it was hard to fix the loop in the centre. I enjoyed working on this sampler.
