TDiTM Stitch #72
Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months
This stitch continues the wrapped backstitch base…but uses a slightly wider base than the last two stitches used.
I encourage you to play around with different half circle or half oval shapes to find the best fit for your project.
Create a wrapped back stitch ‘spoke’ at the vertical position, horizontal right, horizontal left, and 45 degree left/right. Tuck a detached chain stitch between these lines using a different color of thread to ensure a clear definition of your stitches.
This is the half way stitch! Only 72 more to go and we’ll have our 144! Believe it or not…I have designed all the way to 101…and just need to get them stitched so photos can be taken! My goal is still the same, to finish all 144 in 12 months!..so, that means I’ll have to really pick up the pace! I have a glorious week of vacation planned in a few days…and am taking my design book and threads with me to stitch, stitch, stitch…
