Here are the last two samples for Sharonb's challenge at http://www.pintangle.com/ It's hard to believe the year is up. I've enjoyed exploring stitches and thank Sharon for all her work in presenting the challenge.The top is the Crossed Feather Stitch. The next is the Plaited Feather stitch. The difference is that the Plaited one is woven under the bars of the first row every other time. The bottom is the Crossed one done freely.
The dark blue thread is a wool look synthetic. The rest are Perle Cotton in several sizes.
