I added them to my latest sampler in a large circle. I wasn't sure how well suited they were to being stitched in a circle but, it seems to have turned out reasonably well.
|Plaited Feather Stitch|
The base feather stitch for the circle was stitched using two strands of green cotton embroidery floss. I then added the plaited stitches using pink thread (bottom half of the circle) and the crossed stitches using blue thread (top half of the circle). The pink and blue threads were also two strands of cotton embroidery floss.
|Crossed Feather Stitch|
The difference between the two stitches is that with the plaited stitches every second stitch is threaded under the base green stitch while the crossed stitches all cross over the top of the base stitches.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely weekend!
