I used multi colored polyester thread for this sampler. This stitch is explained in detail with samples in SharonB’s blog. The sampler-

This stitch opens new possibilities to work in circles. I was keen to see the effect of the multi colored thread on this stitch. Mandalas can be worked with this stitch as the centre.
