Chapter Six.

This last one is messy but includes rethreading withdrawn threads,weaving in knitting ribbon and cross stitch over and stitching on the diagonal.
This next one shows two samplers trying out a variety of ideas.Left hand shows cross stitch,running stitch,blanket stitch and needle weaving.Right hand shows stitching on the diagonal,weaving,fringing.

This first one shows stitching on the diagonal as shown in the booklet

I have yet to employ the sewing machine in these samples,I have been plodding along trying out hand threading and stitching on drawn thread samples.Some of them work better than others.I have used colours in my chosen scheme,some hand dyed others commercial.
