Have to admit, I felt like playing a little more with this stitch I love the textural effect of it when worked closely. In the first motif, I tried using the stitch as a scattered filler.
The other motif was wheatsheaf stitch and random, interlaced straight stitch with an outline of chain. The green is too dark for the overlay stitching but the dimensional effect was good.
Today, I’ve started playing with curves and spirals. Packing the stitches very close together, adding a beaded ‘spine’ to it and mixing with chain stitch. These are the first two.
I know I’ve probably said this before :), but this is my favourite!!
I think I might also make a sample blackberry or two(very seasonal here in Wales).
The look of this stitch combined with beads would be just right!
Hope you are having fun, too
