Oyster stitch was another fiddly stitch but I like how it looks, I can see many uses and designs for this one. I used 3 strands of cotton floss but pearl cotton would have been a better choice. Since I am using what I have without buying anything else, it will have to do.

My history for this week: July 24, 1866 was the day that Tennessee was re-admitted to the Union after the Civil War, the first state to be re-admitted. That may have something to do with TN being a state that was split over loyalties, literally brother fought brother, one in blue and one in gray. My father's family is from the northeast corner of TN and my ancestors fought for the North.
