I always know when I'm seeing excellent work when it makes me want to run for my needle and thread and work myself! this whole series of variations on the running chain really works so well together, colors harmonized, shapes happy together! this is really lovely.

Kathy said...

Liebe Raphaela,
deine stitch exploration ist super, da kann man nur lernen. Toll, wie du die verschieden dicken Fäden einsetzt!
Den Kreuzstich kann ich schon gar nicht leiden!
Gute Nacht und liebe Grüße
Claudia

Your work never disappoints Raphaela, this sampler is a lovely example of the running chain stitch.

Raphaela,
I love the variety of threads you've used to create chain wave.Have never seen them before.Are they embroidery threads?

Hugs,
Deepa

Raphaela said...

Thanks to all of you.
Deepa, most of the threads are embroidery threads: cottons and silks, one- and mutiple-stranded, some knitting yarns, a polyester ribbon and a thicker sewing thread that my old sewing machine refused to accept - so the thread went into my embroidery thread stash.
