Whitework sampler


This is my first "sketch" for the Feldbach tablecloth. The creature on the right is outlined using stem stitch, and I think I like that better. Below is a picture of this part of the tablecloth, from das Stickereiwerk. Next, I'm going to try the "rectangular" border below. It is done in interlacing stitch/ orientalischer Flechtstich. Help, it looks difficult :-) I found a picture of a 14th century German whitework wallhanging with the exact same border, so maybe this type of border was quite common.
