Once again Sharon inspired me. She told about an old embroidery book, written in 1884 by Mary Haehnlen (with a link to download it). I tried some examples on my block, the dark blue one on the left and the brown one above it. They turned out a bit different, but I like them. I also made a whipped wheel, Cretan stitches, fly stitches, herringbone stitches and buttonhole stitches.
