Take a Stitch Tuesday

Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/2014/11/11/take-a-stitch-tuesday-138-barb-stitch-and-139-beaded-barb-stitch/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Pintanglecom+%28pintangle.com%29  teaches us how to do the Barb stitch this week.  It is based on the buttonhole and I quite like it.  The top photo I used a fine metallic thread to whip the buttonhole threads together.  It didn't work all that well.  It was too fine to see it well.  Oddly it shows up the photo quite well.  I took it out and used a Kreinik Very Fine Braid.  You can see that in the bottom photo.  Again, oddly a little hard to see.

Nice stitching!
Maybe the background fabric and the metallic thread are 'competing' for the camera's attention, and don't show up as well as when seen by the human eye.
I, too, have already tried the Barb stitch and I liked it.
