This week’s stitch on the TAST challenge is Rice stitch. The working of this simple counted thread stitch is on SharonB’s blog.

I started on my sampler today.
The basic cross stitches are worked with cotton skein. The first row is the basic rice stitch worked with polyester thread, the second row is worked with cotton skein, the third row is worked with cotton perle # 8 and the last row is worked with fine silk thread.
