ANG Stitch of the Month 2014 - October
by Mary K. Campbell
Bracelet #3: Antique Mathom
Fill in the side sections:
Work the double backstitch base using any one of your colors and threads. Three different traveling paths are shown:
- The numbers complete pairs of stitches in vertical columns
- The capital letters complete diagonal rows using backstitches
- The small letters complete diagonal rows using a running stitch (note that there is nowhere to end tails with this path)
Choose one of the two embellishments to the base for each of the side areas. They can be the same or different, and of any chosen thread(s). These are only 2 of the possible fillings. Make up your own or find another, but keep it looking light and lacy.
The photos below show a partial embellishment for the side section, and then the section completed with beads, for a third possibility.
