my weekly stitched patches

Rather than a new thread every time I finish one, I'll post them here. That may help me keep at it. Hopefully the stitching will improve as I go through the year.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

That looks interesting, not meaning to sound negative. I have a hard time doing things like this. I can hear my mother and aunts scolding about leaving raw edges and it not being functional.
On my fb I am following a page that often shows these kinds of things. They call them meditations.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

Is the top piece of fabric hand dyed? I like how it picks up the blue from the denim then morphs into a peachy-red color.

Yes Debbie, but I didn’t dye it myself

Lovely way to try out decorative stitches and other elements.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

What a great idea!

I liked the sort of mixed media look of the first and on the second the stitches are so pretty. Well done!

Can't wait to see more.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

We had snow yesterday so last night’s addition was the white French knots.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

Adding "snow" to your patch was a great idea.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

I think these are all quite lovely and I bet fun to do. Are you practising these stitches for a larger project? Or are these patches going to be part of a larger project?

Re: my weekly stitched patches

Christina, I think they wil eventually be added to a denim quilt i started a few years back but put away while working on other projects. But that thought could change. Whatever it ends up being it is practice.... and something to keep my hands busy while watching tv with my spouse.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

French knots are the bane of my existence but I love how they look. Yours are so perfect!

I love French knots but they took me forever to get right. Still mess up once in awhile but I keep at them.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

Here's my week 4. I may cover some of the stitches above and below the fabric with more fabric but that will depend on what I end up doing with the patches. For now, it's on the pile and I'll start a new one tonight.

Re: my weekly stitched patches

The blue scrap of fabric is very pretty. Are you making an effort to try different stitches or just going with the flow?
