I hated my off grid work wheatear work, so I’m on grids again. Here are a few of them.
I kept this next one a little bigger than it deserves for the sake of showing the details. Not a very stable a design, but I had pity on it and didn’t throw it away.
Oops, I’m not sure what happened to those first two French knots on the left!
Here is my extreme turn on the straight stitches. I’m not sure if I’ve wandered out of wheatears into something else. Please don’t hesitate to let me know, if I have. I’ll amend the post accordingly.
Pulled and tightened down.
The next couple photos show some use I made of this. In the first making a straight bottom (Note, the stitches in brown under the green straight stitches are worked like normal wheatears just slanted in towards each other by twos.) In the second photo is the start of a border up and down the six straight stitches. All stitches there are using the principal shown above.
