I just added a small straight section to the centre of one of my circles and I am really pleased with how it looks.
I worked the base straight stitches in perle cotton (8) and I stitched a bar of five straight stitches. The zigzag chain was worked in variegated silk thread. You can find Sharon's wonderful tutorial for this stitch here.
Just so that you don't think that all I have been doing is adding the next stitch to my sampler each week, I have something else to show you.
These are mini quilts that I am making as part of a challenge that Lori Kennedy sets at the end of one of her Craftsy classes and which I have been following. I am really pleased with the progress I am making.
