http://www.pintangle.com shared for this year is the fly stitch. I had planned to use each stitch on my crazy quilt journal project this year. I am a bit slow starting that project though. It funny because I was fully convinced that I should do that project and yet nothing has come to me as yet. I was wondering if I should do the bead journal project again this year. I was iffy on it and yet the idea for it came quite quickly. So I have used the fly stitch on my bead journal project. This journal page is far from finished but I like the start of it and I thought it would be good to share the progress.
I have stitched onto a photo that I took of a broken windshield. I have backed the paper with fusible interfacing to make it more stable. The fly stitch I did very wide and with a short tail. I like the curving line it gives. I used a thick white metallic thread and a thin hologram thread. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to photograph hologram thread.
