I am back to blogging after a five weeks. I missed the first two stitches on this year’s TAST 2013 stitch challenge by SharonB on her blog. I have not done this stitch before, though feather stitch and knotted Cretan stitches have been attempted before on previous challenges.
Since, I want to add to my stitch sampler collection, this is also a band sampler. Some attempts were made on this sampler today. The sampler looks like this now.
