This week Sharon b has assigned the scroll stitch for the TSTC. Her hints for this week are terrific. All I’ve done on this new-to-me stitch is follow a few of her suggestions. I found it easy to work with both off and on grid. I didn’t try any thin thread, all were equal to at least a Perle 8 size.
Many thanks to my readers for all the encouraging comments last week. I’m so inspired by the work I’m seeing as I tour through the flickr account and various blogs. Many thanks for setting up the challenge with such a great variety of stitches, Sharon.
Here are the samples:
