Chain stitches week 8

Chain stitches - one can really do everything with them
I looked for a photo in my archive and found a sculpture
made of wood. I cut out a section of it for stitching.
You might think that it is not at all that - well, never mind
I stitched with fun.

The wood

and the wood grain.

Not recognizable? Because it is inverted!
It could be called artistic freedom.

The sculpture


  1. I love chain stitch, I agree, so many uses.
    I love your sample, also the colours are great.
    And I like the sculpture!

  2. Anneliese, I love your chain stitch rendition of the sculpture. isn't it amazing how much inspiration we can get from nature.

  3. You have interpreted this very well. I love it.
    A most interesting sculpture too.

  4. I love your chain interpretation of the wood stump. We are not the same this week - similar. Mine is not finished of course. The colours are lovely in yours, Anneliese. Cheers Dianne

  5. Looks very, very good to me Anneliese. How clever of you. I'm still to put needle and thread to fabric for this one. Happy stitching.

  6. I love your interpretation!

  7. Liebe Anneliese,
    mit Raphaela sind wir drei, die den Kreuzstich nicht mögen!
    Toll zu sehen, wie du deine Inspiration in Stickerei umsetzt! Freies Sticken eröffnet ungeahnte Möglichkeiten, aber leider leben wir beide in Ländern, in denen es diesbezüglich keine Tradition und Kultur gibt. Ich beneide UK um die Sticktradition und die Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten!
    Wünsche dir ein schönes und kreatives WoE!
    Liebe Grüße

  8. I really like the abstraction from the original source; beautifully worked.
