TAST: Fly Stitch

Here’s this week’s offering. A sample of fly stitch in different textured threads and different variations.

Fly stitch

Top line is fly in two different threads with the stitch overlapping, then fly interlaced with a chunky thread (creates nice “s” shape), then zigzag fly in ribbon, fly with two ties is the one that looks like mirrord “v”s and lastly plain old fly stitch repeated. The linen gets blurry when the threads are chunky as I couldn’t squash it that well in the scanner. I think a number of these would be good combined in a border with feather and herringbone. I wish Sharon well, hope she’s back in stitching form soon.
