Embroider, Embellish, Create update 3

From time to time I add a few stitches to my cloth for Karen's class Embroider, Embellish, Create. Some of them are inspired by Take A Stitch Tuesday, 
a challenge at Pin Tangle. This is knotted loop stitch in cotton a broder.
I found the next 2 stitches in the book A-Z of Embroidery Stitches 2. This is moss stitch from page 105, the thread is perle 5.
This is Hungarian braided chain stitch from page 44-45, the thread is perle 5. 
It’s a very time consuming stitch that creates a nice thick line.
Here I added French knots with perle 8 between the cross stitches.
This is Siennese stitch, TAST stitch 83. I stitched them freestyle with cotton a broder. I turned each next stitch 90°.
Here I added freestyle woven bars to the edge. The thread is perle 8.
These whipped spokes are done in perle 12.
There's only one more long seam that needs embroidery! 
Take a closer look at my cloth here.


  1. I love it Annet....a lot. This is a real treasure....

  2. You have added a lot of new stitches. It is amazing how pretty white on white can be. So this will soon be a completed project? Keep up the good work.

  3. so many interesting stitches, must check them out as I have the A-Z book, more hours in the day please.

  4. Dit is bijna geen borduren meer maar art!
