It's time to show my July finish for Smalls SAL hosted by Heather of stitching lotus. This time I have stitched a small band for a towel and attached to it. Used variegated embroidery thread of 2 strands. The design has been taken from here.
Also, I have done 2 more blocks in needlepoint sampler.
For this block I have combined two stitches. The stitch in the bottom half is called Round eyelet stitch. Just stitched two rows of eyelet stitch and filled the unworked area with long stitches. Learned the stitch from here.
The stitch above the eyelet part is variation of brick stitch called Double brick stitch. Learned the stitch from here.
The name of this stitch is bound cross stitch. This stitch can create nice effect with the proper placement of colors. But I didn't do that correctly. But it is a good stitch to fill in a particular area. Learned the stitch from here.
I will be back with my embroidery in the kurti. Till then, Happy embroidering and have a great weekend.
