Another set of variations of seinnese st from the challenge by Sharon-TAST2010

8b- A row of zigzag back stitch, the seinnese stitches are worked in the space in between.
8c- What was I thinking when I worked this row? definitely not having to write about it.
First two rows of [wide] running stitches
,then the twisting part of the siennese stitch-
the top seinnese stitch is worked on the bottom running stitch and the bottom siennese stitch is worked on the top running stitch. There! I have written it.

Just a few more of the variations of this stitch coming up.

Some more variations of the seinnese st from the stitch challenge-TAST 2010 by Sharon.

24.Siennese st-7

Another set of variations in the next post.

This is the sixth post of this siennese st of the stitch challenge –TAST2010 by Sharon.
The details-
6a-Again this stitch is replacing cross stitch and made into a pattern.
6b- here, the twisting thread is long armed.
6c- If I want to explain this band, I could go on like this -the straight stitch and the twisting thread are contained in 5 holes, but the straight stitch being in the same line, the twisting thread went up and down –or just say- a wild way of working this stitch

24.Siennese st-6a,6b,6c

Will continue with the details.

Another 3 variations of this 24th week stitch of the stitch challenge TAST 2010 by Sharon.
5a-the stitch is done with two threads, one for the straight stitch, a variegated thread for the twisting stitch.
5b- The checkered version of the stitch, with two threads, one plain, another variegated.
5c-I used this stitch as cross stitch and went up and down to create a pattern.

The picture  quality is not very good though, When I work the stitch with wrong tension it shows very clearly, but when I do it right, the picture is not clear.definitely not my day.these things happen.

24.seinnese st-5a,5b,5c

Few more variations in the next post.

I am still continuing with the details of my stitch sampler which I did for the tast2010 challenge by Sharon.
4a-in this row, the broad and thin version of this stitch is done alternatively to create a decorative border.
4b-here the long and short version of the stitch is done, but the shorter stitches are done at the top and bottom alternatively within the boundary made by the long stitches.[is this easy to comprehend?] It is seen here that I do not have a comfortable tension free relationship with this thread., but still,you get the basic idea.
4c-the simpler seam, where the long and shorter version of the stitch is done alternatively.
This part of the sampler should be called seinnese stitch-4 alternates or alternate siennese stitch-4-

24.siennese st-4
