I’m sorry to have been unexpectedly away from blogging for the past few days. There are several family difficulties that have arisen and are cutting into time available both for stitching and blogging. Things still do not appear to be on an even keel on one of these issues.
I’m taking a blog break until Monday, June 23. I’ll come back with either a normal or amended blog schedule then.
Here’s a look a few of the experiments I’ve been able to do in the past few days. These are continued trials on the raised stitch idea that I’ve been looking into this year. Instead of using a straight stitch or herringbone to raise these stitches, I’ve been looking at stitches that use the previous stitch to raise the next identical stitch.
The third column of sorbellos is my favorite. The first column is cross stitch. But there is another way to do this. I used that method several years ago to create an alphabet.
Many thanks to all of you who have been checking back and to those who have left very kind comments, I’m trying to respond to these a few at a time.
