The thing I loved most about this project was having the time to play around with the stitches and threads. Something simple like stitching a row of running stitch and weaving a second colour through the stitches. Watching oval shapes form when I weaved back in the opposite direction. The roundish shape is nice contrast to the herringbone stitch.
I have since found out this stitch, with the double weave, is called Interlaced Running Stitch. A single weave is Laced running stitch.
Mark the line for the Interlaced Running stitch, 1½ inches from the side.
Stitch a row of running stitch.
Choose a second colour and weave it through the stitches in one direction and back in the opposite.
Interlaced Running Stitch
Mark the line for the feather stitch, 1½ inches from the side.
Centre the feather stitch over the line.
Work colonial knots.
The colonial knots were worked with a single strand of thread unlike the colonial knots in Step 2.
I love the look of feather stitch but need to concentrate when stitching it.
