Dutch Canal House Embroidery - August Update (Having Too Much Fun!)
Submitted by Pam on Wed, 08/22/2012 - 15:49
Dutch Canal Houses! Great progress is being made!
I didn't plan it this way, but the table runner is becoming an opportunity to learn new stitches as I look for ways to create interest and texture.
My strategy? Simply to page through two of my most favorite stitch references until a stitch jumps out at me! Most times the stitch itself will suggest where it is best to be used!
I am thinking, if you like, once the houses are completed, I can publish a list of the stitches I have used with links to web sources of instruction. Anyone interested?
And here are my two favorite book references for learning stitches!
Added after posting: Susan just reminded me that I forgot to link to the previous post in which I shared the beginning of the project and how I developed the pattern!
Here it is! How the Dutch Canal House Embroidery began.
