Tracy, what a creative genius! I would never have believed it possible to achieve such lovely effects from just herringbone stitch.
Thank you Erica. I love this stitch, and I have always dabbled working with it.
Such a great example of how something so beautiful can be made with just one stitch...
Thank you so much Heather.
Love this! I was amazed when I scrolled down and found it is all done with one stitch.I notice that you have it on a millennium frame and have a question. Do you think that these frames are suitable for any type of embroidery given that they only stretch the fabric in one direction? I wonder because I have one which I find fantastic for my cross-stitch but am extending my repertoire to other techniques and wonder if I can use should invest in a slate frame?Thanking you in advance.
Hello Irene For me, the ultimate frames are those that pull in both directions, such as the slate or peg frames, as I think it is important to have tension both ways, otherwise the fabric distorts a bit.The millennium frames are great for small projects, sampling, and are really well made.I think both the millennium frames and the slate frames have their uses.Hope this helps.
Thank you Tracy. That helps a lot.
