The first year that Sharonb at http://www.pintangle.com/ did the Stitch a Week I didn't join but did work some of the stitches. I've finally made the samples into an accordian fold book. Each page is a different stitch. The background is wool which I love to work on. It is easy to stitch through while being heavy enough to support the stitches. I'm also freer than when working on counted thread fabric.

I really like how you made it into a book. That is a great idea! I used to do a lot of embroidery. Now just bead embroidery. It is all so addictive and meditative.
Wow. Its so impressive on the black. I never thought about stitching on wool, though I have beaded on wool felt. Thanks for the tip on the wool.
What a great way to keep and display your stitches - your own book of stitches! I like how you've done several examples of each stitch, making it a great reference and inspiration.
great idea to make them into a book and I love the way they pop off that dark background.
