TAST week 22- satin stitch

A lot is happening around me but I’m still trying to remember about some crafty activities. The motif in satitn stitch was made few weeks ago as a central element of the red bag. I used DMC Color Variations stranded cotton (new in Poland though it was available much earlier abroad). I like the combination of colours in this thread. It’s different from Coats Multicolors, more delicate I think.

Here’s the photo:

I like monogrammes as decorative motifs. They are not very common now, perhaps because we use things  shorter than 100 years ago, when they were used till complete destroyment or because nobody has enough time  to add this kind of personalization to everyday life objects.  I embroidered once a normal bed sheet, you can see a little how-to here:


If you are interested in this kind of embroidery, check the old DMC books here. You’ll find a lot of inspirations.
