L is for ... #atozchallenge



A-Z Challenge 2016

L is for Long-Stitch

Which is something I have done!
Bluebell Wood Lane Long Stitch Kit

Long stitch is tapestry which is done using long stitches!!  



Here is a little link to DMC which shows you how to fully do long stitch!

I have completed one kit many years ago ... it was a Thomas the Tank kit for Mark :D

It really is simple to do!  Why not give it a try :D 

Long Stitch is lovely to do and nice and quick so even bigger pieces can be simple, relaxing and quick :D

I may even get myself another kit and give it a bash again!! 

Hugs

  1. I tried long-stitch once but the threads wouldn't lay neat enough for me so quickly gave up. Mind you, I wasn't even a teenager at the time! When stitched properly the results can be really effective. I look forward to seeing your new long-stitch start soon! :)

  4. I have a bargello project on the go which uses long-stitch I think, unless you just call it bargello, anyway, it's fun.
