This sampler was also worked some time ago, the details of which were not posted. The working is here on Queenie’s blog.
The sampler is started with the basic stitch, the next two samples are the back of the same stitch.

I am catching up on the posts of Sunday Stitch School samplers. The working of this stitch is on Queenie’s blog.
I started the sampler by working the stitches between 2 parallel lines. The next ones are shorter versions of the stitch.
SSS.67.fishbst-1
After working the stitches on leaf and heart shapes, the fishbone stitches are outlined with stem stitch.
SSS.67.fishbst-2
French knots are worked around closed fishbone stitches in the first sample, fly stitches are used to work the second sample instead of straight stitches, the last sample is outlined with buttonhole stitches.

Queenie in her  blog mentions that this stitch’s origin is from India. I didn’t know that. Remember seeing this stitch on some embroideries, but thought it was a creative fly stitch. The working is on Queenie’s blog. This stitch was posted there few weeks ago. When this sampler was started this week, I worked the first three rows slightly differently [forgot to check], then decided to check, finding the stitches are connected, again started from the fourth row.
SSS.86.ankst-1
After working one sample in the right way, the second sample is worked alternatively with the stitch and its inverse.
SSS.86.ankst-2
In the first sample the anklet stitch and its inverse are worked on top of each other to form a pattern. The stitches are worked horizontal to form a line in the last row. This matti cloth was not an ideal choice for this stitch. A plain cloth would have given allowance to work the stitches in an imaginative way.

This past week I have been trying to work stitches from SSS challenge. So far the stitches are easy. It is sometime since this challenge was worked. The working of this crown stitch is on Queenie’s blog.
It is a simple stitch, I wanted to get the rhythm of the stitch is the first row. Then started with varying the last stitch on this stitch arrangement. Short stitches were worked in the first variation, extra lengthy stitches in the second variation, the stitches are curved in the third variation, two stitches are worked instead of one in the fourth variation, the stitch goes under the central stitch alone in the fifth variation. Circled around the three stitches in the sixth variation, the seventh variation as linear stitch has half worked with herringbone stitch on one side, the crown stitch is worked in two shades in the eighth variation.

Now experimenting with the three straight stitches starts-
Four stitches are worked instead of three on the first variation, then five stitches were tried in the second variation, the stitches are short in the third variation, longer stitches form the fourth variation,
In the last four variations the central stitches are different embroidery stitches- fly, detached chain, pistil stitch and berry stitch.

I really enjoyed working this stitch sampler. The crown stitch gives scope for possibilities. The whole sampler-sss.79. crown stitch sampler

 

This was a productive week. Project work is moving slowly, but it is moving. I also started working on latest SSS challenge stitches. The Beyond TAST challenge stitches till yesterday, were already  worked before on earlier TAST challenges.
The navy blouse has three medium size motifs on each sleeve. I have few brocade blouses for sarees. These are quite good, but simplicity does not coexist with brocade. So an embroidery which can represent subtle idea of brocade is the theme here. The work so far is slow, but feeling satisfied-

This is the bluish green crepe fabric, for which a small border was drawn last week, the border pattern was traced on to the black fabric. When this project will be started, depends on the progress of the navy blue blouse, if that work becomes monotonous, I can start on this project. This design has stones and zardosi beads.

This stitch was not an easy to work. The working of the stitch is on Queenie’s blog. Her samples are lovely.
Two things could have helped- a fixed hoop and perle cotton thread.
I was using a hand hoop and cotton skein to work this stitch. The result-

The past week was stitch free week, being Navrathri festival. This stitch was learnt on the tenth day, hoping for successful use of this stitch in the future.
