Welcome back to another episode of #stitchingsunday. This recently added Sunday theme* highlights stitches from blog posts in current stitching projects.
I decided to put my money where my mouth was regarding the recent post about the Oblique Tied Diamonds. The original version was large and in charge. As mentioned in the earlier post, I wanted to try it as a house.
Today's version is much more subtle, as it uses Splendor and Elegance for the cross and the stitch tying it down (gray lines and aqua lines, respectively). A single vertical stitch with Kreinik Metallics Fine Braid (#8) replaces the bead. In the sample above, it's the front of a house. I think it would also make a fantastic roof.
These stitch diagrams, along with all other #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday stitch diagrams, can also be found on a Pinterest board here.
If you like what you see on this blog, want to learn some very creative decorative stitches, and how to put them all together, whimsicalstitch.com sells stitch guides and stitch concepts for Melissa Shirley Designs, Zecca Designs, and Patience Brewster. 43 guides are currently available, including the brand new Passion Flowers and Royal Peeps, and more are in the pipeline.
I hope you have the perfect spot for this stitch! Enjoy!
* Don't worry. #smallspacesunday hasn't disappeared. I want to mix it up a little.
