Pulled stitches - a new love

My pulled threads are beginner's stitches
Annet told me where to find a little tutorial on her blog

Annet's blog was a great help (here)

I might turn it into a little pillow for lavender - back at home.

This is a vacation work.

  1. Although you say you're a beginner your stitches are beautiful:-)

  2. Great idea to make a log cabin embroidery! I'm glad my tutorial helped you.

  3. Your pulled thread work is wonderful Anneliese.I discovered a few years ago it can be very addictive.try googling Schwalm work. It incorporates the pulled thread and is beautiful and satisfying work.

  4. your pulled work looks very good, such a relaxing kind of embroidery to stitch I find. How fit you both are, I have not ridden a bike for at least 30 years!

  5. oh beautiful. i will check out Annet's tutorial.

  6. I love pulled thread embroidery. I am sure you know about Schwalm :-)
    But there are others..

  7. I could tell you were falling in love! Your sampler does not look like a beginner's piece so I think you are really getting the hang of it. Bikes look smart in red!
