Satin Stitch samples
Take a Stitch Tuesday this week is Satin Stitch and I have been trying out mosaic patterns from A Pageant of Pattern for Needlepoint by Sherlee Lantz and Maggie Lane. Ten different patterns are shown in the sample stitched with Appleton Wool on 18 count canvass.
I have been looking at some of the older embroidery books that I have. The Arco Encyclopedia of Embroidery Stitches by Anne Butler has great photographs of different stitches and hand drawn diagrams. I bought a copy from the Friends of the Library book sale for $2.00.
