A Schoolgirls Work
More Loot

WIPW

I thought I was finished with this book cover but I decided to change the stitching and use it for my "Exploring More Stitches" class.  I was only going to do small inserts of detail and perhaps those in the class who don't want to spend a lot of time on the piece could still do this.  But I have decided that this sample should have a fully stitched band across the design.

I have tried to use a range of stitches  and then use those stitches in different ways.  From left to right the tree truncks use Herringbone stitch, the next two are an alternate back stitch, Pekinese stitch, Stem stitch and finally Cretian Stitch.  I still need to put in the details of vines, flowers and birds.

It looks lovely - striking and effective!

This is one of those pieces that keeps asking for more. I still have quite a bit to give it but I don’t want to “over feed’ the beast.
