This was another new stitch to me and it took me a little while to get into the rhythm of it. It is another stitch which requires you to pay close attention to the tension of the thread when you are stitching it. Actually, I have come to the conclusion that most stitches do!!
I added three small rows to my sampler. The first row I added (in the middle of the three) I used a variegated fine silk thread and although it looks quite pretty, I don't think you can see the definition of the 'link' stitches as well as in the other two rows which were stitched using a thicker pearl cotton thread.
You've learnt lots of nice new stitches with this project. I prefer the stitch in the plain colour too. Your sampler must be getting quite full xx#ReplyDelete
