Sheaf stitch & thorn stitch

The second stitch for the &Stitches stitchalong is sheaf stitch. This stitch wasn’t new to me, it was TAST stitch 33 last year. I made a small 2 x 2 inch sampler at the time, you can see it here. It was a challenge to turn the sheaf stitch into a flower, but it worked. I used perle 12 and small bugle beads. The French knots are done in 3 threads of stranded floss. Then I added thorn stitches in perle 5.
Take a closer look at my sampler here.
