Alternative SOTM


Although I am missing the actual get-together today for this month’s SOTM, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on the piece.

I was somewhat surprised when I saw the instructions — “daisies” seem pretty far afield from the all the other very geometric stitches. And I have to say, I’m not sure that I like them. And I admit to finding them pretty boring to stitch. But I’ve finished two sides, and here they are:


And a close-up:


And in case you’re wondering where I am, it’s here:

  1. I have to agree, Jill, that the stitch doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the piece. I did, however, like the band in between the two rows of “daisies”.

  2. Totally agree that the Daisy stitch was boring – even before I finished the first row of them. For me, there are 136 of them. I’m over half done now. I centered one to start the row while you appear to have one on each side of center. So, we’ll end up with different numbers. Melita

    • Yes, I realized that there were two ways of starting from the center…and wondered how the compensation would have differed if I’d done it the other way. But having realized this after I’d already stitched too many daisies, I decided the way I’d done it was just fine. 🙂

      • The main difference is that I’m not going to compensate the bottom row. I got one extra full daisy to fit. I didn’t know how it would out either. And, I too am fine with it!
