Algerian stitch


This is my Algerian stitch experiment. I used different yarns and threads.


I began with these geometric stitches

and then thought that it is not for me although I like it.



You have to be very disciplinary to continue like that.

See the detail photo – I like the different leaf shapes.


The sky was blue - though a little covered - so this  photo
has the blues.



And here after wind and rain



a natural leaf

  3. I like the design you have created with the Algerien Eye stitch Anneliese.
    That leave with the lovely raindrops could inspire you with the natural arrangement of the drops.

  4. I like your Algerian leaves! But the geometric design is pretty too. I like stitching these kind of stitches on Aida, it's much easier to count!

  6. The geometric stitching is very nice, but I like the free way you have used it in the leaves. Great photo of the natural leaf.
