This week’s Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge stitch is Algerian eye stitch. This challenge has been a great motivation for me to keep a steady stream of stitching going every week. It’s been a chance to play and experiment with unfamiliar stitches. Algerian eye stitch was an unfamiliar stitch for me. Not now. I had an interesting time with it.
The linen fabric I chose is loosely woven. It is also very uneven in the weave and thread. That made for some interesting stitching, but I like the large center holes that pulled up so nicely. In the end, my sample has a kind of flower garden look that I really do like. Now I’ll have to figure out what to do with it.
