Herringbone Stitch ATCs
Today I gave myself a day off from university work (especially as I was up until three in the morning last night finishing off a sample!!) and decided to have a play with Herringbone stitches. It wasn't a totally random decision as it is also the theme for one of this month's ATC swaps. Having not done a lot of this particular stitch before I was a bit worried that my stitches weren't evenly spaced- it took a lot of concentration to get them as they are!! Tongue sticking out kind of concentration. I think by the final ATC I had just about cracked it though.
I also mixed in a few other stitches, french knots, back stitch, whipped back stitch and pekinese stitch- definitely my favourites!!
