SAL Mon Cahier de Broderie Hoja 3 Pagina 5 & 6 Finished

Continuing to learn more embroidery stitches. This is the third leaf, pages three and four of our embroidery notebook. It is a delight to accompany so many friends in a SAL and learn from each other, share our struggles, and resolve to do our best.

Stitches are: Straight, French knots, colonial Knots, Woven Running , Holbein, Granitos, Grids, and Grebiche.

Algerian Eyelets, Buttonhole eyelets, satin stitch eyelets, sorbello, Turkey knot, Peking, Long and Short, Point de Paris, Palestrina. Be sure to see the blog The Curious Frau. she has a great tutorial on how to make beautiful hand bound eyelets.

Instead of straight stitch, I put in Granitos for the flower petals.


There is a great tutorial on these two Eyelets here. See Mary Corbett's needlenthread for more explaination of buttonhole stitch.
