I've had a really busy week what with the banner making, C+G display on Saturday, marking students assignments and starting a course myself (as a student) at work on Tuesday, so I haven't managed to squeeze in a lot of stitching. I have however done one postcard sampler based on Week 3 stitches which were concentrating on lines. I really like the cable chain stitch at the left hand side of the picture and a knotted cretan stitch in the middle.

Hopefully this week I'll have a little more time to experiment with Week 4's stitches and design ideas although I do have a lot of stitching to do on the banner to get it finished to hang probably next weekend.

You've done better than me Vicki, I haven't even started lesson 3 and we're on 4 now! Love your sample

Nice work Vicki. That border makes a nice strong line. I signed on a week late, I don't think I will ever catch up!

I like the change in thread color, too. These lines are all strong, and look very artistic, even as a sampler.

Hi Vicki. I like the border stitching. I'm also particulally fond of the last bit of stitching on the right hand side---the ones with the french knots. It is a very nice effect.... You've done very good! Love it.... Brenda M.

Thank you ladies for your comments - the work at the far right hand side of the picture is lines of running stitch which are offset. A thread is then whipped through them to make the diamond pattern and french knots sewn in the middle of each diamond - glad you liked it Brenda.
