This month Sharon's challenge is the trellis stitch. Looking at examples around the Blogs I thought I could give this a try, I like textures, this stitch looked like one which would do just that. Finding a practice cloth and thread I started to practice the stitch.....mmmm.....not as easy as it looks, I found it difficult to get an even tension, try as I might it was just not working for me. To avoid frustration and throwing the cloth to the back of the cupboard to die an uncertain death, I decided to go with the flow......
Here are examples of my some of my practice stitches.
I then put these away, so as not to be influenced by them, because I have to say that I did not feel confident about the end results.
A few days later, having browsed the community, seeing what other gifted ladies were turning out, my confidence began to wain even more....not to be put off completely, I took myself out...out of the sewing room, out of the house, out of our little village and away to clear out all the cobwebs.
This was the result, I just went with the imperfections and had fun.
