Stitch samplers

Here are my samplers for the first 2 weeks of my Joggles online course, Personal Library of Stitches with Sharon at Inaminuteago.

Week 1 - Borders
Peronal Library of Stitches - sampler 1

Week 2 - Points
Peronal Library of Stitches - sampler 2

I started out very controlled and following the stitches to the letter, but then started to add or change parts too. As I did these I had heaps more ideas that I wanted to explore but run out of room. I've written them down and will give them a go sometime.

Excellent work. Thank you for posting. Are those butterflies being chased by a swarm of bees?

Love the 2nd sampler in particular as although its very abstract you get the sense that its a summery night in Scotland with swarms of tiny tiny insects surrounding you.

You've worked hard at all the stitches. Both the controlled and the freer stitching is so elegant looking.
