I’m definitely having my problems learning some of the interlacing work on the herringbone and cross stitches. I have a lot of worthless samples and all that I’m posting show some of that struggle. I know from experience that I have to keep pushing through the barriers.
I keep thinking I should try beading to fill in some of the spaces between the stitches above.
I was attempting a curve here, but the spacing in the middle fell apart on both ends. I need to make the herringbone form smaller. Eight threads was to small and this at twelve was too large. Ten has to be the right compromise.
I’m looking forward to trying out some other types threads, too.
