I started this chapter by choosing the drawings I thought would be best for this interpretation in stitch and have been doing them over a number of weeks.  Now I have brought all the samples together I am quite pleased with some of them.  I must remember, if I want to replicate a design I may have to transpose the stitching – see Images 5.1&2 and 5.5&6.  I have done quite a bit of cable stitch and couching as I think the texture adds to the interpretation rather than having flat stitch.  The layering under the silk in 5.10 gives a lovely effect as does the use of the jersey fabric and no hoop in 5.5.
