Feather stitch is the third weeks stitch of the TAST 2012 challenge by SharonB on her blog.
Previously I has posted my experiments of this stitch done two years ago. This one was worked on even weave cloth. So I thought let me explore this stitch with other stitches on small motifs today.
I have a fancy for block printed fabrics, with this inspiration, I drew some patterns on which I can use feather stitch with other stitches and beads.
