The needlepoint tapestries are worked with this stitch. When this stitch became a part of SSS challenge last week, there was an anticipation to work a small flower in tent stitch. The days went by, realizing it is almost the end of the week, decided to work the stitch as sampler. The working is on Queenie’s blog.
The sampler starts with a single row of tent stitch, a slightly bigger version was tried in the second sample. Six strands of cotton skein was used to work the samples.

It was an easy stitch to work, the anticipation to work a chart still remains there. God willing, another time it might happen.
