New Stitch Monday With a Twist – Week 10
My hunt has continued for stitches that I have never done and I found a really interesting stitch for the letter ‘N” on the Raymond Crawford “NEEDLEPOINT” canvas. Years ago, I joined a club called “Building Blocks for Needlepoint” by Stitch Play Designs and as I was looking through the pamphlets, I found this stitch called Virginia’s Stitch. I continued looking and I found the same stitch in “A Father B Sampler – Stitches for the 21st Century”. It was meant to be that I would do this stitch. I used Splendor S910 (4 strands for 18 count and 6 strands for 13 count) shown pink on diagram and Entice E265 shown blue on diagram. I did need 2 cards of the Entice. I really liked the way the stitch turned out. Play around with different threads and or try using 2 different colors to see the different effects that you will be able to achieve.
I hope you can add this to your new stitches for 2021. Give it a try!
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
