I try to visit Stitchin Fingers every day to see what people have been doing. Yesterday this lovely casalguidi reminded me of my first raised stem stitch band. I made that one 2 years ago for the Stitch Explorer challenge. Lyckily I knew where it was hiding, because I used the same doodle cloth for my Contrast ATC. The fabric around my raised stem stitch band was just enough for a small ornament. I still had some of the thread I had used for it and made a Portuguese stem stitch border. To be continued!
