Week 31 Algerian Eye Stitch
I have only ever used this stitch in drawn thread work and once in a sampler. I love using it in the drawn thread which I usually stitch on linen. I have often thought about trying it on curtain scrim but of course I don't have any to hand. I will get there some day.
I did have some odd pieces of fabric I picked up from an Charity Shop on the off chance that it might come in handy some day. Today was the day.
I used a perle thread and just played with pattern within the confines of the weave of the fabric. This meant the the stitching wasn't quite symmetrical. Just a bit wonky. I then mounted the piece over a piece of gold wrapping paper so that you get the glint of gold showing through those eyes.
