Stitch Combinations 9

The Dragon Vest wouldn't be me if there wasn't a bit of Chicken Scratch on it. So here it is - as a band along a piece of velvet ribbon inserted when I was piecing.

Stitch combination 8

Chicken Scratch is usually on gingham - so in this case I had to work the evenly spaced crosses on which it is based, using waste canvas. I like the ribbon as a canvas for the stitch.

That's combinations finished for a while - not sure where I am off to next.

That's an interesting-looking stitch! How do you keep the rounded parts so nicely rounded?

Hi Susan,

It is just a tension thing. That part is woven, and not pulled too tight.
