A few more variations of this stitch were worked on the sampler today.
4.I started working long turkman stitches in the first row, then tried to work the long and short version in the second row and pathetically failed! To compensate for that I tried twisting the bottom feather stitches in the third row – this row soothed me a bit.
5.Two step closed feather stitches are worked on the bottom and basic closed feather stitch was worked on the top on the first row. Gaining some confidence, I worked two step feather stitches on top and bottom in the second row. The third row has up and down feather stitches worked at the bottom.
6.Detached chain stitches are worked over the middle thread in the first row. Arrowhead stitches and pistil stitches are worked over turkman stitch in the second row. Alternate tiurkman stitches are tied down in the last row.
This is an easy stitch to work, I like the braided look when the stitches are worked closely. The stitch sampler was completed after working these samples.
