TAST Week 5: Herringbone Stitch
This week over at Sharon Boggons' Pin Tangle, the challenge was to learn the herringbone stitch. I don't mind admitting that this stitch has given me fits in the past. I don't know why, but I had to constantly look at the directions for left-handers while I stitched and it took many, many tries before I was able to just stitch without consulting those directions. I think I finally have the basic stitch down. I did try to do some more advanced work, but it's still not in my comfort area. I'm going to continue practicing until I can produce the stitch that reminds me of chicken wire. Meanwhile, I found one of the blocks I'd prepared for a beading class I took with Nancy Eha this summer and hadn't used. So now I have that as my second practice cloth before moving on to my miniature CQ.
