|Line Stitch Sampler|
Thought a good way to start this Chapter and remind myself of a variety of stitches was to create a sampler (20cm x 20cm). I used strips of cotton lawn, scrim and sheeting from my stash of dyed fabrics. I tacked them on to the ground and then experimented with a range of threads and stitches. I especially liked the messy, slightly rolled edge that was created with the scrim. The exercise also reminded me of the different qualities of the threads and using the right needles, especially with the metallic threads and Marlitt.
