Be part of the stitch sampler project

Parallel to the lexicon's new stitch additions I host a Sampler Along called The Triangle Sampler Project (yeah I know, I'm so bad with names ^^). Every other week, there is a set of 3 triangles to practice the new stitches added to the lexicon. It's the perfect opportunity to try out the more unusal stitches and incorporate into an actual project. The Sampler Along is hosted on Patreon, a platform to subscribe to an artist monthly, similiar......

Spring Stitches

Is it Saturday already? Time passed by so fast during the last 2 weeks! There is so much happening around here and spring makes the trees slowly greenish again. The other day my son and I drove through our lane and I said to him I could even imagine how the trees were looking like in summer. We are so used to the barren silhouettes! A couple of days later there are leaves and plum blossoms everywhere and my garden shoots up the first spring onions as a messenger for the wonderful things to come.

This week on Instagram I talked about embroidery hoops and what different kinds there are - metal, wood, plastic, square, oval, round - you name it! There are some good tipps in the comments, so make sure to read them (and comment!), too. I also talked about bad......

lexicon of embroidery stitches

This weekend, the lexicon comes even closer to 150 stitch tutorials. What a number! Around this time last year the idea formed to document all embroidery stitches.

How it all began

When I look back, I wonder how I could even think of this crazy idea to document all embroidery stitches. But to be honest with you, I didn't think that much about it then. There was this desire to absorb new stuff like a sponge and dive deep into something. Back then I made a list to get an overview of all embroidery stitches I could find - and found out quickly that this would be interesting.

The following conversation with my partner during the list making process says it all:

"Darling, I think this project I'm planning is going to take a while." "What, why?" " Well, I have already found over 100 stitches." "Oh, ok, then you have something to do, right?" A......

embroidery stitch lexicon round 14: bokhara couching - seed stitch - whipped running stitch - palestrina knot - fern stitch Running stitch is the most basic stitch around the embroidery stitches. It may have the reputation to being dull and flat, but have a look at this: It's amazing how the texture changes if you whip the running stitch. The flat one is seed stitch, the raised one is whipped running stitch. I think this picture reflects very well how small alterations of a stitch can change the whole thing. I used this same effect in my geometric animals......
