Up and down feather stitch
Yesterday I decided to do the up and down feather stitch before I’m going to catch up. I started with the rows at the edges with different threads and angles to see the possibilities. Then it was time to have fun with this stitch! I made a flower with a yellow spiral trellis heart and blue detached chain stitch petals. The up and down feather stitches around it are done in perle 5 and 12. Then I added some bullion rosebuds and a twig made of bugle beads. It’s a great stitch! There’s a bigger picture on my Flickr-page.This stitch is part of the Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge at Pintangle.
