Needlepoint Tent stitch

Last week I have got my mail from Pradhan embroidery stores with some yarns, embroidery threads, purse thread and single thread tapestry canvas.  I am happy that I have got the canvas in my hand.  So with the thought of making a needlepoint stitch sampler I started with the tent stitch.   Used all the six strands of embroidery thread.  I have learned to do the stitch from here.  

Block 1 - TENT STITCH 

Also drawn a mandala in my sketch book.


Some quilled creations for a photo frame.


My Sophie's garden blanket is blocked and it is getting dried up.  Will take snaps next week and will be posted here.  Till then happy crafting and embroidering.  Have a happy weekend.

  2. A canvas work sampler sounds like a great idea! I have a piece of canvas and want to find a design I can do for my first piece, there are so many canvas stitches that I really want to explore them.
