I tried a couple of things… at the top – I tried to replicate knitted linen stitch. I like that stitch especially in variegated yarn. The circle was made by laying down perpendicular lines of yarn and then securing them down to the linen with cross stitch at intersections. Circle outlined in backstitch. And in the middle – some plaited stitch again. I love the pattern this yarn makes.

More couching. This time free style, using variegated silk yarn and cotton embroidery floss.

I wonder what this would look like if the yellow thread was thinner?

I cannot do little projects. I just cannot. Just a few stitches here and there… not very exciting. So, change… plan *a* project, however big it is… work daily… post when there is progress, or a new stitch to show. This is what I did on day 2 and 3.

Horizontal stripes: Couching – Roman Stitch; Vertical: Laid Work – Plaited Stitch (same as #1).

Better than yesterday. But it slow going and not as good and neat as I wanted it to be.
