Smalls SAL - July finish, Needlepoint blocks

It's time to show my July finish for Smalls SAL hosted by Heather of stitching lotus.  This time I have stitched a small band for a towel and attached to it.  Used variegated embroidery thread of 2 strands.  The design has been taken from here.

Also, I have done 2 more blocks in needlepoint sampler.

For this block I have combined two stitches.  The stitch in the bottom half  is called Round eyelet stitch. Just stitched two rows of eyelet stitch and filled the unworked area with long stitches.  Learned the stitch  from here.
 The stitch above the eyelet part is variation of brick stitch called Double brick stitch.  Learned the stitch from here.                                                                                                                                                                                        

The name of this stitch is bound cross stitch.  This stitch can create nice effect with the proper placement of colors.  But I didn't do that correctly.  But it is a good stitch to fill in a particular area. Learned the stitch from here.

I will be back with my embroidery in the kurti.  Till then, Happy embroidering and have a great weekend.


  1. Your towel border and blocks both look pretty! Are you making a sampler of blocks or just learning stitches?

  2. Design in towel and both the needle point samplers are good. Hats off for learning different types of works.

  3. Love this! Especially the green and yellow one. I have been wanting to go embroidery since some time now but have never got to it. If I every do, I am gonna use all the stitches that you share here :)


  4. What a lovely idea to attach the stitched band in towel. Looks lovely :)


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
