Eigth Block – Details 162 to 165 February 15th, 2007

Wheat stitch

Wheat Stitch variation with beads…Wheat stitch is 3 straight stitches of the same length pulled together at the center, I saw it in a book and went home and stitched it from memory….when I saw the stitch again I was amused by how bad my memory was as I had stitched it with 4 straight stitches of different lengths….I liked the variation and have continued to do it this way, looks good running end to end along the seam too.

Cretan stitch

Cretan stitch with straight stitch stars on one side and detached chain on the other….you will notice that the stars are only in every second space, I like the secondary pattern formed by doing this.

Herringbone stitch

Herringbone stitch done in a lovely (it was very expensive) gold and black metallic thread and trimmed with beads.

Feather stitch and Colonial knots

Feather stitch done in a silk buttonhole twist thread and simply trimmed with groups of 3 Colonial Knots.

    Beautiful stitches! I love the variation on the wheat stitch. The colonial knots with the feather stitch really set it off.
