Siennese stitch

The TAST stitch for week 24 is the Siennese stitch. I enjoyed it very much! This stitch reminded me of the Sorbello stitch and that made me stitch this example in 2 colours with perle 8. When I was stitching this, the next variation popped up. I made the stitches next to each other, but I turned every second stitch a quarter to the right.
In this next variation I made the second part of the stitch on both sides of the straight stitch.
This is a simple drawing of that.
These are only a few of the examples I made on my sampler for this week. I also used it in freestyle embroidery! My complete sampler is on my Flickr-page.

  1. Hi, I saw your sampler on Flicker, but did not realise you had turned each alternate stitch round on the blue one. This looks good.
