16.110.rope stitch


This week was good in progress on SSS challenge. Three stitches- Rumanian stitch, Hungarian stitch and Bosnian stitch were completed. Braid stitch is the next in line. It is not behaving friendly with me. When I seem to get the slightly familiar, if a break comes, getting back to the rhythm is hard. Should I have chosen a smaller design to try this stitch? Too late now. Just have to keep doing it.

I combined other stitches with rope stitch in this part of the sampler. I saw the idea of building a seam on a group, this created interest, I want to try this idea, whenever possible on my samplers.

I wanted to use this stitch for working stems, creepers, so the sampler is worked in green threads. Building seams, working samples for a specific purpose, are new steps for me. The whole sampler-

Rope stitches are worked in opposite directions in the fifth sample.

The long rope stitch is combined with short rope stitch in the first row. The needle was inserted further in the line to form a shorter version of rope stitch, this is combined with basic rope stitch in the second row. Rope stitches are whipped and laced in the next two rows. I tried a wider version of the stitch by inserting the needle beside the previous stitch in the line in the fifth row. The detail-
