I'll follow wish of introducing oneself. tb is me, Anna Syveken, and I like to try out a lot of new stuff. Right now I have two "projects":
1) trying out Hohlsaumstickerei. (hem stitching)
2) trying to create a pattern for this piece of cloth:
It can be found at the museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with the following information: Punto di Milano, Italian, 16th–17th century. Overall: 10 x 132 cm (3 15/16 x 51 15/16 in.)Linen and silk; embroidery. White linen embroidered with red silk. Carolina Amari. Greek needle work. Gift of James William Paige, 1883. Accession number: 83.236.
So far I don't have an idea, which kind of stitch it is. Blackwork combined with cross stitch maybe?
I love geometric patterns and to create patterns from existing pieces of cloth. Normally I like to learn new techniques but I'm not the type of stitcher to start a bigger project, because I want to see results very quick.
So, I guess, that's it for now. :)
