Take a Stitch Tuesday 73 Portuguese stem stitch

I have to say that when I first looked at the instructions for this stitch on Sharon's blog http://pintangle.com/  I thought I would skip it.  It looked a bit daunting to me.  But I decided to look closer and actually read the instructions and decided that I can do that.  I am really glad that I attempted it.  It is a neat stitch and not that difficult.  Mind you I have not perfected it but I will continue to work at it.  I must say that I did find it easier to do sideways rather than up and down.

It is so important to find a working direction that feels right. Your block is so beautiful and I am happy you did not give up on the Wrapped Coral stitches.
