Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ shows how to do the beaded Vandyke stitch this week. I have to admit that I didn't remember how to do the Vandyke stitch and had to go back and practice. I showed it in the bottom photo as I really liked how it looked with the variegated thread. The beaded stitch is in the top photo, obviously. I think the bead I used is too large so I am not terribly happy with it.
