I don’t know about you but I tend to stick to what I am familiar with. I have confess to owning my sewing machine for nearly a year now and only using two stitches, straight and zigzag!!!
A while back I saw this idea of creating a stitch guide for your machine, and I have been meaning to make one for myself ever since!
The idea is create a guide numbering the width and depth of each stitch on your sampler. This creates a handy guide to refer back to whenever you are sewing a project.
Unfortunately I became distracted by the stitches, and realised that I had not set about the project in a sufficiently organised way to record this level of detail – I had only thought about stitches where you vary the length, and not those where it is possible to vary width and length creating many more variances!!
I am delighted to have discovered stitches which I will use, now I know how they stitch:)
Having had a hectic week I am looking forward to a slightly more relaxed week:) The eagle eyed will have noticed that I didn’t quite make my self imposed blogging every day for seven days – it just didn’t happen the day I worked 8 hours and then went out in the evening!!
Trusting you have had a creative week I am off to see what other people have been up to over at Handmade Harbour.
