I had a lot of fun with the fancy hem stitch. I show you a few details here. You can click on the pictures to see the details bigger. These 2 rows are done in perle 5 with silk wrappings. I only wrapped them twice, because the silk was very thick.The green row is done in perle 5 again and I used the same thread for the wrapping. This way it’s a very boring stitch. So I made a line with DMC broder special and I wrapped it with a shiny green thread. I don’t know what kind of thread it is, there was no info on the spool. It looks like a metallic yarn, but it feels like plastic! This thread was awful to stitch with, but I like the effect. I decorated this row with French knots.
This square is made of 9 shifted rows with no space between them. I made the blue hem stitches first and then I made the wraps in brown and beige.
