Some more samples of barb stitch. This stitch was worked as tree motif in the first sample. The buttonhole stitches were worked in a pattern to achieve this. The second sample can be worked as a broad border and a filling. Every fifth whipping stitch is dropped in the third sample.

So many possibilities can be tried with this easy stitch

This week’s TAST stitch is an easy one. The tutorial for the stitch is on SharonB ‘s blog.
With the idea of exploring this as linear and filling stitch I started this sampler. In the second sample the buttonhole rows are worked apart, when the whipping stitch was pulled tight, it looks like the first sample.

In the first sample, the whipping is done on long and short buttonhole rows. Alternate spaces are whipped twice in the second sample. Another filling idea is tried in the third sample.
