Wogga Stitches 4
For this stitch combination I was wanting to fill a blank space in the middle of the block, but also to use the lines there for a combination that needed their precision.
So first I did the big Cross Stitch, using the see-through plastic ruler to make sure they were as wide as the lines (ie a square result), and that the stitches were half their size apart. (Don't tell anyone - first they were the same distance apart as their size - that didn't work, so they came out).
Then I did the smaller stitches across them. And it was only when I was half way through them that I knew what I was doing next. So I hadn't exactly made sure the ends of those stitches (where you can see the weaving later), were exactly the same distance apart.
What I did last was to take the lighter green, and weave it Chicken Scratch-style between the arms of the smaller crosses.
I quite liked it. So I went off and did this bit:
Which is quite complex Chicken Scratch - and the fiddliest bit was getting the crosses the right distance apart. It was out with the see-through ruler again.
I am resisting a temptation to work a smaller daisy in the middle of each section - might try that on another block - that's the good thing about samplers.
