A Personal Library of Stitches

This online class with SharonB has been on my wish list for a long time. Now I take part in the class. Although I am definitely no border fan I had great fun playing with border variations. Here is my favorite:

A Personal Library of Stitches (Eine persönliche Stichbibliothek) ist ein Online-Kurs mit SharonB, der schon lange auf meiner Wunschliste stand. Nun habe ich diesen Kurs belegt. Ich bin zwar kein Fan von Umrandungen, aber das Ausprobieren verschiedenen Varianten hat mir viel Spaß gemacht. Hier ist mein Liebling.

And than I fell in love with the Portuguese stem stitch. It makes such a great texture, just as SharonB said ...
Und dann habe ich mich in den Portugiesischen Stielstich verliebt. Er macht eine wunderschöne Textur, genau wie SharonB gesagt es gesagt hat ...

What a beautiful examples! Your Portuguese stem stitch is stunning, what threads did you use?

I didn't 'see' you at the forums of this class. Hope to meet you there, it's a lot of fun!

Thank you all for your kind comments.
Annet, I used perl cottons in different sizes, cotton and silk embroidery floss and the light blue thick rope is a polyester ribbon. And have to admit that I have not entered the forum yet.
