I’ve been poking about for more stitches built on straight stitches and found this one. I’ve come to love working with in the past few days. There is a great drawing of how to work the stitch here. Many thanks to Classic Stitches.
Here are samples. I captured them when we had a few minutes of sun the other day. It’s a good thing because they are bulky and my scanner doesn’t do well with them.
The photograph above is the standard by the book sample. Below I start playing with colors.
Now to play with the background stitch a bit.
