Like a lot of other people, I joined the “Take a Stitch Tuesday” challenge that Sharon Boggin is hosting for 2007. My hand embroidery skills are practically nil so I thought this would be a good way to pick up some pointers and improve in this area.
The herringbone stitch was the first stitch given last Tuesday. I am probably one of the last ones to show my little sample for this stitch. I had no idea how I would showcase my attempts until last night. Some people are making a sampler; others are using the stitches in their crazy patchwork. I decided I would keep it small and do ATC’s.
Here is my poor attempt at this:
The background is felt. I used all six strands of embroidery floss (DMC), but I think I should have used only three.
We’ll see what the next stitch brings, hopefully something a little better. LOL!
