Guilloche Stitch Variation, Cross Variation and Diagonal Half Guilloche Stitch

I really did feel confident enough to try the guilloche stitch variations without practicing them first on my doodle cloth.

I think that I could have made the weaving a bit more regular but as Tricia suggested in her instructions, it is not easy to keep the initial loops a consistent size.

I am happier with the cross variation. I think this is my best stitch on the sampler so far.

The weaving is more regular of the diagonal half guilloche stitch but there are a couple of places where is could be improved.

Happy Stitching
