I'm calling this neat because Lorelei said it was, but it would look a lot better stretched on a frame. There are around 25 patterns represented here. Let me see if I can enumerate them in order. I'm going to order a square embroidery frame for working on things like this.

Square 1: Ringed back over 4 threads, 3 rings. Ringed back over 3 threads, two rows. Offset back stitch to take up the space at the bottom.

Square 2: Fancy ringed back stitch with 4-sided stitches. Not too happy with this.

Square 3: Large satin stitch squares with cushion stitch centers, 3 left empty

Square 4: Variations on padded and cushion stitch including alternating double back and satin.


Square 5:  Two kinds of diagonal 4-sided stitch.

Square 6: Festoon stitch over 2 threads, reed stitch, which I find hard to count, double faggot stitch with interlaced smaller thread (unsuccessful attempt).

Square 7: Large satin stitch squares with cushions and eyelets in them; 5 half-eyelets and a couple of rows of double back stitch.

Square 8: Magnificent filling without a name that I can discover. I am certain I did not invent this but I haven't looked through all my books to find its source.

Square 9: what looks like ringed back stitch, plus stairstep satin stitch blocks

Square 10: Some experimenting with various widths and combinations ofsatin stitch, and diagonal raised band in 4 weights of thread, #10, #20, #30, and tatting cotton, different effect for each. The snaky thing is an unsuccessful attempt to do satin stitch over padding, in this case a row of chain stitch in a larger sized thread. I do not know how people do that gorgeous wavy-edged curved satin stitch.

Square 11: Variants of wave stitch plus some honeycomb stitch.

Square 12: Small satin stitch squares with eyelets, 4-sided stitch, and nothing in them.

I'm starting a new one with narrower margins. The outer boxes on this one are too close to the edge to be properly taut in the embroidery hoop.

It does look neat! Is it now at an end, or are you planning to fill more squares?
