A Flamestitch

In my last post I stated that I was going to start/re-start IRS 1738. I had started this sampler a couple of years ago but did not like the way the colors looked on the linen that I had selected.  So I restarted it a couple of weeks ago and did not get very far before I got bored. So I started another sampler which I mentioned - A Flamestitch.  As previously stated I think I am addicted to the Irish stitch now.

I am working this on 40-ct Lakeside Linen Pear using DMC. I am working the alphabet and some bands as charted with the eyelet stitch but have decided to do the scallop band in rice stitch.

As you can see I get easily bored so I have worked my way down the left hand side to the bottom where I can work some on the flower band with the filled in background.  That way I can jump back and forth between the parts as I get bored with one area. What can I say - a case of stitching ADD!

Happy Stitching...Robert

It looks great and by moving around it should keep you interested.

This one is gorgeous. Just like your other sampler I started flamestitch on white linen but the colours looked awful. Have restarted on a beige called platinum This time I love it. Can't wait to see more of your progress.

Robert it looks wonderful and you have plenty of areas to change up your stitching.

Looks fantastic! I really like your technique for stitching different bands/sections. Will have to try that sometime myself!

Very, very nice. I want to reach right through the screen and stitch it also. Enjoy.

Sometimes it takes a while to settle on the "next" one after you have enjoyed the last one. I like the idea of working down the side then moving where your fancy takes you.
