Sharon B shows us the Fancy Herringbone Stitch this week. I have not tried this stitch previously and gave it a go, top photo. However I stopped one step short of actually completing the stitch. I have a couple of reasons for that. First, I like way it looks as is. Second, the third step is to loop thread through the crosses and I find looping difficult to get right. Not only that but even if I do get the looping even/correct it can move around after I am finished.
The second photo is my January take a stitch a day project. The goal was to do 31 different flowers. Not all of the flowers are different but I did learn some new things and I am pleased with this piece. I had fun doing it.
