Iam happy about , the name of this week’s stitch is short.
This is the 17th week of the stitch challenge TAST 2010 by Sharon B.
.As Iam working all the stitches in a band form,I tried doing this individual stitch also in rows.
1st is always a learning line.
I did a row of arrowhead stitch,and placed the sword stitch on the peaks and valleys.
3rd row is also arrow head stitch,with the sword stitches facing each other.
This row of sword st is leaning towards the left, I added floral sequins and some beads, and as you can see,I bungled with the beads.
In this , 4 sword stitches are starting from the center , where an upright cross stitch is done, I finished this by adding few cross stitches, in between.
3 sword stitches are starting from the center with sequins.The photo is not good.
I did these 2 rows of sword stitch in 2 colours,to make it more decorative,I changed the angle of the stitches and added some beads .
first motif of sword stitches is with detached chain stitches.
2nd motif,I did a small needle threading at the centre, with a circle of sword stitches.
3rd motif is a semi circle of sword stitches in 2 rows,with beads
Last row is collection of 3 sword stitches going in 3 directions.
I liked the stitch, and the colours I used for this sampler. Very simple stitch.Can also be used as a filling stitch.
