TAST: Feather Stitch

Feather Stitch hasn’t been a friend of mine in the past but I’ve got on well with it this time around. I think the main problem was trying to get the stitch perfect. This time I haven’t bothered that much about it and the stitch was worked out well. So below you will see from the left: standard feather in chunky thread, closed feather in perle (need a thread that will behave itself to get the shape right), double feather in a knobbly thread, slanted feather in viscose ribbon and long armed feather (or spline stitch) in a slippery thread.

Strangely I also though feather stitch was due for an appearance – perhaps we’re all getting TAST ESP!
