After the diamond stitch , this stitch was quite easy.Initially,the loop tension,thread twisting were all playing their part.after 3 or 4 rows I got the hang of it.For this stitch sampler , I used varigated thread, similar to perle cotton,but made locally[India].This range gives me freedom to use many colours.The anchor perle cotton is not available in Oman.Now for the sampler,The rows were done in matti cloth[ Bombay deing] -
All the rows.I also did a row of trees just as fly stitch.-
Sampler of motifs-
This time , wanted to add beads to a row for seeing their effect on this stitch, But chose a wrong colour -dark red.Not eye catching perhaps,But I was ready to wrap up this sampler. -
For the motifs it was just gold beads-
Though I have not tried this stitch before, I liked working on it.After coming from India, had to catch up with first 4 stitches of the challenge, so that is seen on my samplers.
