This was one of the stitches I missed when I was in India for three weeks. The working of this stitch is on SharonB ’s blog. I had done the sampler of this stitch during the previous challenge. This week some more samples were worked as part of this challenge. The first part of the sampler.

SharonB is started  a very interesting  needlework  challenge  TAST2010  this week’s stitch is fancy hem st..

This stitch looks like a filling stitch, I used it as a line stitch  because I am doing the stitches in this  challenge as band sampler.

I did not get too many ideas- starting with the sampler-

I stitched  fly stitch on second line and added beads and sequins-
