TDiTM Stitch #105

Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months

The "arrows" in this stitch reminded me of a flower pistil. That got me to thinking about these little floral beads, so I used them in this stitch where the French knots would go. And 4mm crystal bicones were used for the French knots along the herringbone stitch.

You might note that this stitch is not across a seam line. This is often something I do to help fill in space and to keep combination stitches from "fighting each other". In this case, TDiTM Stitch #103 was placed adjacent to this seam. Here is how they look together!
This is a great trick for filling in space along the seams!
