Hand Embroidery Samples 3 .... Straight Stitch

Straight stitch is a versatile stitch.... the more I experiment with the stitches on this course, the more I am seeing unlimited possibilities for their uses in my own work. The sample below is Straight Stitch on Irish Linen, using threads including imitation silk, DMC stranded embroidery thread, hand dyed linen, Sylko 50 weight sewing thread,  Tudor Twist, and King Tut 40 weight variegated quilting thread.


The following experimental piece was created on silk fabric with threads including Tudor Twist and hand dyed linen thread. I am enjoying sharing this work with you all. I hope I am inspiring you all to have a go and experiment!
