Stitches on top of stitches

Some of the fun of stitching with these new stitches I’ve been learning is try various ways of putting them together. I love to explore how each stitch is put together but the past few days I’ve been experimenting with how to put together the stitches with each other.

Here are a few samples from that work:

Sorbellos mirrored, off set and over lapping.



Detached raised chain stitches mirrored and over lapping.

Below Eskimo stitches two rows back to back in the center and on the outside two mirrored rows that also overlapping the center rows. The pattern makes this is very dense and the picture doesn’t convey as much of the interplay between the threads as I might wish. I may do a few more experiments with this same pattern in various color combinations. I’d like to try adding beads in the centers.


Here’s some raised chain work where I did add beads.


And then more beads with these sorbellos.
