5.After working a wider version of this in the first row, herringbone stitch is worked over it. Buttonhole stitch was worked over the straight feather stitch line in the second row. The inner skeleton [?] is whipped in the third row. This last row looked like a braid, to remember the working, I took pictures.

The working of the last row is done this way. Going back with the needle once-

again going back with the needle under the next one .. The same treatment was continued to get this braid.

7.A narrow version of the stitch worked over the wider version. The place for this sample would have been appropriate on crossed feather stitch sampler I suppose. One side of the straight feather stitch was twisted in the second row. Getting too adventurous I tried twisting both the feather stitches in the last row. Not a good idea. Still when I wonder how this row was worked in future, reading this might help.

When I was working feather stitch sampler some of the samples were straight feather stitch, which I am trying not to repeat here. The first part of the sampler-
