When the 15th week stitch of the TAST 2012 challenge was on SharonB’blog, I was on stitch -free vacation. Now that I have completed this week’s wheatear stitch, thought of working on stem stitch sampler. I don’t see many ideas regarding this stem stitch, though I have used it before on my embroideries. This led to the practicing of stem stitch on some floral designs.
Floral petals worked in three shades-
