More dealings with the feather stitch


I’ve got this piece under way. The long-term goal, once the stitching is finished, is to bead, cord and mount it on a cover for one of my journals. It’s unusual for me to do anything for TSTC that I don’t get done within the week, but this is one.

I’m also trying to limit myself to just the buttonhole family for this piece. I think the feather stitch belongs to it. What I’ve done with the purple thread may be a stretch. The inner yellow circles are a buttonhole stitch, but then again perhaps they could be considered a feather stitch with one common hole (or nearly common center) and moving each stitch around it. When I was stitching I couldn’t see any difference between the two concepts. However, I’m not an expert and my thinking some times drifts dangerously beyond what a well-trained mind would allow.

As you may see below, I’m still fascinated with the closed feather stitch and its variation.

    I love the work on the red, especially (I’m inordinately fond of working in multi-colors on red fabrics!). A journal cover’s a great idea! Nice job!
