Straw and Trusses of Straw
The outlines of all sections covered with straw were worked with Slanting Wide Stem stitches (coton à broder No. 16) – the blanket,
and the left trusses of straw at the bottom.
In my earlier piece I worked the straw with Bullion Knots (Early Schwalm Whitework).
This time I worked Wide Stem stitches (coton à broder No. 16)
in lines of three, four, or sometimes more stitches.
The placement of the lines was determined by the orientation of the outlines.
