SharonB of inaminuteago.com has started a new challenge Take A Stitch Tuesday - TAST
She will dicuss a differnt stitch and all its variations each week. The stich discussed last week was the Herring bone stitch.
I have worked out the basic Herring Bone and a couple of variations.
My favourite though is the Herring bone Stitch worked within a circle. I struggled a bit with this. I remember my grandmother used to work this on hanky corners when I was a kid. I never bothered to learn the stitch and now she is no more. All I remember is that she used two coins to draw the circles. I am still not sure if I got it right. I have to check with my mom and aunts for samples of my grandma's work.
Thanks to Sharon, I was forced to try it out.
I have used the Closed Herringbone stitch for the first circle and the Open Herring Bone for the second.
I am still working on the other variations which I will post as soon as they are complete.
I am working on more variations,
