|Woman's shoe of brocaded silk, with vandyked tongue, England, about 1720|
For the sampler this week, there has been a focus on learning Four Sided Stitch.
Left Page = I have used a blue linen with tea coloured DMC Pearl No8, to pick up the colours in the shoe.
Right Page = A piece of very old lace in a similar colour as the shoe
The top section is pulling the four sided stitch tight.
The centre sections is pulling the four sided stitch tight, and leaving a row of thread in between each line.
Lower row is laying the stitch without pulling the thread tight.I like how I like how this forms a box.
