No brainer this week -- I do like how Sharon outlined her lace and filled in with satin stitch.

If you read her narrative, she said this is about the end of the basic stitches. You've been warned! ha!

Bring it on ;-D Seriously, it will be a challenge to learn new stitches every week, but that is why I got into this. Sharon's lace does look great.

I suppose outline is okay, too, since it's just whether the thread is over or under.

Debra Spincic said...

My guess is either is fine.

Judy S. said...

I sure like "over and under" better than "right and left"!

Cy said...

Over and under, right and left, you put your whole self in .. and wiggle it all about.
Oh sorry, I got confused for a moment, thought I was doing the hokey-cokey.

Stem stitch has suddenly taken on a whole new meaning!

here we call it the hokey pokey!

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

Hokey-cokey here, hokey pokey is ice-cream!

What? Ice cream?
