I have come to India . With all the travelling and visiting, this week’s sampler is not growing much. A few samples done so far.


Some additions made later


This week’s stitch is Pekinese stitch on the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB.
I have not done this stitch before. I found some similarities between this stitch and Kashmiri couching stitch. I tried some samples of this stitch-
1. The back stitch is done in pink and the Pekinese stitch is done in blue perle cotton .first row, is the trial of the stitch. The second and third rows are two lines of Pekinese stitches facing towards and away from each other.


2. The first row is Pekinese stitch worked in a curved line. The second row, I tried twisting the thread alternatively in both directions[not successfully, though]. The third row is two lines of Pekinese stitch in two colours.
