Stitches Used

This is a section of pattern darning  which is just a form of running stitch arranged in patterns. I used hand dyed rayon thread on hand dyed linen. I enjoyed regularity of it yet seeing the effects the changing colours of the thread.

Sampler section 50

Stitches Used

In this area using a rayon thread, I laid down a pattern of lines in running stitch. I  then laced thickish metallic braid through. This created a secondary pattern of spaces which I added bugle beads to. Since running stitch is one of the easiest stitches to learn and lacing it is just as easy this is an ideal pattern for beginners. My tip would be to use a cotton thread however as for new hands to embroidery rayon can be frustrating.
