Some time ago I made this ATC for a colour combo swap. I used this crocheted turtle applique pattern and attached it to some pink Gingham. I used backstitches for the words. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

Sunday Stitch School is a private challenge at Queeniepatch, she started with Anundsjö Stitch. This stitch is new to me, so I just had to give it a try. But first I flipped through my embroidery books to see if I could find it. I found it in The Stitches of Creative Embroidery by Jacqueline Enthoven, it’s detached split stitch. Luckily I have the Dutch translation of the same book, so I also found the Dutch name: losse splijtsteek. I have a few unfinished samplers and this stitch was perfect for my pretty fabric sampler. I used Stef Francis per 5 for my detached split stitch. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

From time to time I participate in a Teesha Moore inspired patch swap. I made this patch for Johnny for a redwork swap. I used backstitch to quilt Sunbonnet Sue and cross stitches for the border. Just click the photo to take a closer look.
