Buttonholed herringbone & raised cross stitch

After many posts about journaling it’s time to write about embroidery again. This morning I picked up needle and thread and did some TAST-ing. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pintangle. This week’s stitch is buttonholed herringbone stitch, which found a nice spot on my pretty fabric sampler in white perle 8. In the centre I stitched a raised cross stitch in Caron watercolors.

  1. Even een spelfout eruit gehaald! Wat een leuke steek, die buttonholed herringbone! Ik kende die steek niet en heb hem gauw opgezocht. Het is mooi zoals je borduurwerk het patroon van de stof versterkt.

    1. Dank je wel, Marjolein. Het is een simpele steek met een heel leuk effect, ik gebruik hem regelmatig.
