Happy New Year! My Contemporary Stitch course resumed this week with a small project of monograms. These are a hot topic in fashion wear and companies like Hand and Lock have been busy stitching monograms for Burberry and other high end designers.
I chose lazy daisy and French knots because these were the stitches that had caused most confusion on previous workshops. I varied the weight of thread to demonstrate the relationship between stitch size and thread. I also sampled two different colour ways for the infill pattern.
