Old Pekinese stitches

The TAST stitch for week 33 is Pekinese stitch. It’s a stitch I used recently, but I want to share my samples chronological, so I start with my TAST 2007 samples. 
I made rows of Pekinese stitches with perle 5 on evenweave . . .
. . . and a circle with 3 threads of stranded floss on muslin.
I stitched my next sample for Sharon’s PLOS class. Here you can see how I pull the thread through when I stitch more rows of backstitches.
And these are the finished diamonds. The left one is done in brown perle 12 and a metallic thread, the right one in brown perle 8 and perle 5.
This triangle is done in blue perle 12 with a metallic thread. It’s part of the same sampler as the diamonds.
And this is my recent experiment for Issue 3 of the Ezine &Stitches. I cannot share the details, but there’s a bigger photo of the complete ornament on my Flickr-page.


  1. Nooit kunnen bedenken dat er zoveel verschillende steken zijn. En wat maak je een hoop mooie borduurwerken!

  2. Wonderful stitching Annet! Thanks for posting all your samples.

  3. As always beautiful samplers, I especially like the colours of the first one! Thank you for sharing, Annet!

  4. Great samples Annet. Lovely colours also.

  5. Oh, how inspiring! I love how many ways this stitch can be done! Thanks for showing me more ideas! I just posted my attempt on my blog: http://asucculentlife.blogspot.com/2012/08/tast-pekinese-stitch.html
