Wheatear

What an interesting stitch we were given last week on TAST.  All I could think of initially was sheafs of wheat and grass.  In the end, grass won and “Grasses at the Gate’ was produced.  Not terribly original but I was quite chuffed with the idea of doing barbed wire with this stitch.  All in all I was happy with the end result.
Grasses at the Gate
Now that I have had plenty of practice with this stitch I will used it more often and embellish it heaps with other stitches, beads etc.
It is getting more and more difficult not to use other stitches in conjunction with the given stitch.
Pop onto www.pintangle.com to see more amazing and interesting ways people have used this stitch.

Hello Di, Your painted landscape is truly beautiful. The thread colors made this scene very colorful and vibrant. The bard wire fence was the perfect way to use this stitch. Hugs Judy

HI! Di, your stitching is really lovely and the grasses in front of the posts show it, especially the colours you chose to stitch your landscape with.
