Just saw this one in another old book and loved the look of it. Fast, fun and done. Stitch two rows facing each other slightly off set. First row, I used the line on the graph paper. Second row used the half space between the lines.
This is a straight stitch variation that also could be stitched in several colors. I choose one today. Again, using my trusty graph paper, this is a quick one to stitch. I started with the center stitch, added the wings and then decided to make the straight stitches along the seam line the same color.
Can't believe we are in the hundreds. That means there are over 100 stitches posted. Wow.
Todays stitch is another variation but then that is what crazy patch stitching is all about. Start with a large V adding a lazy daisy loop on the bottom for a tail. Next add a star stitch at the top. I started with a slightly longer straight stitch in the center, then added an X on top of it.
Saw this stitch in an old book and it was called threaded herringbone. It is really not threaded. I tried to thread it and it didn't work. Stitch a regular herringbone pattern. Then go back with a straight stitch and cross the x's.
Well I am still on this blanket stitch kick...lol... There are so many possibilities. Todays stitch is a double curved blanket stitch. Again, I used the graph paper putting a dot on every 6th center block and every 3rd block to the right. Connect the dots and away you go. I didn't draw the second row on, just free handed it.
Well after letting a jammed finger rest for a few days, I am back to stitching. Today's is another blanket variation. This time in a curve. I put a dot on the center line of my graph paper every 6 blocks. Then put a dot every 3 on each side of the center line and connected with a curve. Finish with a straight stitch flower.
Another blanket stitch combo. I used the half spaces on the graph paper, making 4 stitches covering 2 full lines on the graph paper. This is definitely one time the graph paper will keep your stitches neat and orderly.
Today is absolutely gorgeous. A bright sunny fall day and that is my mood today. It is one of those days when you get lots of things done. This is a combination stitch of a large blue V and yellow lazy daisies. Where would we be without our fall mums adding color to our gardens?
