I just started working on a Strictly Christmas stocking cuff for my son in law and I had great plans of sharing 2 new stitches with you. I wanted one for the top that would give a snow like look and one for the bottom that would also have a snowy look. Unfortunately, that did now work out. I must have tried 4 – 5 different stitches. To say the least I am totally frustrated. So today I will share one of my all-time favorites of “keeping it simple stitches”.
The T-stitch is a great stitch to use just about anywhere. I usually use it as a background stitch when I want the main theme of the canvas to pop & the background to be in the background. If your sky background is light sky blue a great thread to use is Waterlilies “Ice” # 044. It is an overdyed thread. For 18 count canvases use 4 strands and for 13 count use 6 strands. Where ever you choose to use this stitch I am sure you will be please. Just remember to follow the pattern of how this stitch should be done. You will notice a slight difference if you change the direction on the front of your canvas.
Give it a try.
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
