Textile.org Stitch a long week 3

I am not really into stitching samplers but I did enjoy the slow rythnic process of using couching as a stitch. The featured artis was Richard McVetis and we were encouraged to pick a shape and then use different couxhing methods in four different shapwes. Mine is very conventional and uninspired - I just chose circles but there were some inventive ones including one of a leaf shape that I really liked with opposides of the leaves done in different couches textures. From the top left my couching includes couched over long sequins, random couching of textured thread, grid stitch and at the bottom complete infill. I am not sure where I would use these as most of my work is on the machine but it was fun to sit and stitch while lockdown held sway
