TAST - Take a stitch Tuesday

HERRINGBONE STITCH















Here are my beginning stitches. I have decided to do a sampler.

I began with the basic Herringbone stitch, then overlaided
with another Herringbone, done in DMC floss, 3 strands.
Next is the high, low style, also in DMC floss,
with french knots to accent, in perle cotton "Wildflowers"

And using the stitch to tack down some rick-rack, also stitched in Wildflowers.

Below, is another look at the stitching but I wanted to show
the lazy dasiy and streight stitches I used to accent.

Gail, I like your idea of sewing lines betwen which to practice. That's a great idea. Your seams look wonderful, and I really love what you did over the rickrack. I may try that - I have a nice sparkly one just waiting for me to use it. =) Thanks for the inspiration!
