Feather Stitch

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.
