This time I completed Lesson 3, Looped stitches, and finished the second sampler.
|Stitches, from the top down: |
1. Chain stitch; 2. Zigzag chain stitch; 3. Open chain; 4. Detached chain & Lazy Daisy; 5. Fly stitch; 6. Feather stitch; 7. Buttonhole stitch; 8. Couching stitch.
But until then, let me share a few more thoughts about the class. I could not resist checking a few embroidery tutorials on the web, and realized that Jessica (the Craftsy instructor) has great tips on how to achieve more consistent stitches. In the 2nd lesson, for example, she showed her way of doing the threaded and the whip stitches, which makes it easier to move the needle in and out of the stitches. She also demonstrated an easier way of making the stem stitch. By the way, since my last embroidery post, there was no long waiting for the replies.
Thanks everyone for checking out my embroidery Pinterest board! I was so excited to see so many repins that I had to check out your pins as well and got literally sucked in - I had just four hours of sleep last night :).. Well, that's it for today, readers. I got to do my Greek homework - the class is in one hour and I still have to complete five exercises. Antios!
