Take a stitch Tuesday

I enjoyed working with the herringbone stitch.  Truly, I have enjoyed all the stitches so far.  I am really glad to be participating in this learning experience.  I worked this stitch on some paper/fabric I made.  Beryl Taylor makes this paper/fabric combo and I was inspired to try my hand at it.  Of course, I made it my own way!  Following someone's directions goes against my creativity or am I just rebellious?  Anyway,  I had no preconceived idea/plan for this piece so that gave me a bit of freedom.  I wasn't concerned about doing it right or messing up.  I just enjoyed the process and I am quite pleased with it!
A big thank you to Sharon B at http://www.pintangle.com/  for doing tall this!
