Old feather stitches

I’m still working on my feather stitch sampler and hope to finish it tomorrow. In the meantime I have a few older samples to share. The first one is a detail of my ornament Reply to Good Morning. I used perle 8 for the feather stitch and the twisted rope.
The second one is part of my border sampler. Two rows of straight single upright feather stitches in perle 5. The slipped detached chain stitches are stitched in perle 8.
A feather stitch with 2 threads of stranded DMC and French knots on this Crazy Monday block.
I made this feather stitch in perle 5 on my first block for Sharon’s Encrusted class. It's decorated  with cast on stitches in perle 12.
