Today I wanted to use a stitch that creates a thick line. I flipped through my embroidery books and found the Hungarian braided chain stitch. This stitch is very time consuming, but it looks beautiful. I used it for the border of my second design for Sharon's class Sumptuous Surface Embroidery. The thread is 1 strand of Caron Watercolours Sheherezade. Click on the photo to see it bigger.
