Further progress!

Morning!

I have made more progress on my sampler for the Personal Library of Stitches class...

Week 1 - progress
Threads used are #3 perle cotton, silk and cotton floss, and Caron Impressions (cotton, I think). The top stitch is another variation on Guilloche stitch... I like the size and heft of the stitch done this way; however, I think you would have to be careful where you used it as it might overwhelm other, more delicate stitches. It would make a great border though!

I'm going to do some more couching, and probably another variation on the Portuguese stitch, as I like the Portuguese stitch and want to do some more experimenting with it. The next lesson should be out tomorrow!!

Love the colours, especially given the fabric colour.

Is it almost Aztec????

Power colors! And I love your hefty guilloche stitch. You're so right about it making a wonderful border.
