Thanks for all your tips on Couching. Initially I did think that the flower looked alright, but when I studied it again I started getting doubts about it. Too much pondering ,I guess.
Well, Iam going to leave the couched flower as it is and try another one with the couching stitches closer to achieve a different look with the same stitch.
Now for the next set of stitches.
Well, the red one is called Coral stitch.The second one is Scroll stitch. Both, as you can see, are knotted outline stitches. I couldn't think of any floral patterns for these ,so I wrote an S and a D. I found the coral stitch easier to do. In scroll I missed the knot a couple of times (the arrow) . Infact, I like the stitch without the knot too - slanted outline.
What are the possibilities with these stitches? Do you have any more ideas on outlining to share? I would love to hear from you.
Will see you in the next post with another method.
Love,luck and sunshine,
