This week's stitch is the lovely Feather Stitch. It is a gentle stitch that is performed by swaying your thread left to right and moving the positioning left to right as well.
The picture below is a little scissor keeper I made some time ago in a beautiful linen. The emerald green thread is the Feather stitch. The other couple of stitches are a mix of stem stitch and lazy daisy for the leaves. The hollyhocks were my first attempt at ribbon embroidery.
Just for something different, I thought I would add in to this blog post the update on Ermine Stitch. I wanted to show you how the ermine stitch looks like little stars. This is the Crazy Patch block that I have been slowly working on.
