I completely forgot last week to do the stitch which was Ladder Stitch.
The first one is my sample sampler which I had to stop doing because the stitches were getting narrower as I went down-so I started again.
I don't think the second one is much better.
This is my official sample and I was concentrating so much on getting the width even that I didn't realise that I was moving over to the left.
I didn't notice it until I was putting the photo up here.
Oh well they can't all be perfect can they :-(
My sample sampler.
Again the stitching isn't flash but----
The first five are how they are meant to look--in the next five the right hand side leg is straight down instead of being on an angle and in the last five the straight leg swap from the left to the right side on alternate stitches.
I like doing Fly stitch and I love doing French Knots but this stitch didn't really appeal to me--maybe it was the thread that I was using.
Normally I use Perle cotton on all my samples but on both the Italian Knotted Border stitch ones I used variegated floss thread and it just isn't the same somehow.
I am now going to have to find something else to do my practise samples on because the piece of fabric that I have been using with the squares on it is all full up.
