Sharon B showed us the Herringbone Square stitch this week. I had not tried this stitch previously. I must have intuitively known that I would not be able to do it well. I decided to try it because Sharon suggested that the lacing step could be done with interesting threads. I have a lovely collection of threads and want to use them more often. However, I definitely chose the wrong thread as it is nubbly and it just makes the stitch look messy. Also, getting the stitch to actually be square was a big challenge for me and I failed. I was thinking this could be a really interesting start and was hoping to build it into a larger motif. But since it turned out rather poorly I think I will pick it out. I enjoyed trying this stitch but I won't be doing it again.
