Friday Homework for Lesson 41: Thorn Stitch

I have just fooled around with this week's homework of Thorn stitch.

First I added a few odd Thorn Stitches to this piece where I had previously worked Whipped Running Stitch and X-Ray Stitch.


 Secondly I pulled out some pieces and strands from my box of Challenge Threads, and couched them down with simple Thorn Stitches.

  4. I have Christmas on the brain and see your artistic stitching as baubles and streamers on a tree and the second as antlers for the missing deer. Love your work.

  5. That's an exciting stitch. It adds texture and it's organic.
    It could be a branch or seaweed.

    1. Just like the Rambling Rose Stitch, you only need a few short strands and can make a great spiky line.
      Have fun!
