Berry Stitch Lines

 Week 50 of TAST was the Berry Stitch which is simply a double chain stitch.  I worked the outside chain in #5 Perle cotton and the inside chains and running stitches in #8. Certainly amazing how many variations there are with just one simple little stitch.
A bit more progress on my pulled thread piece as I finished each of the sections off with a different pulled thread pattern. Now to finish it off into a pincushion but that won't happen until after Christmas.

  4. I like this Berry stitch. It really adds dimension to the piece. Your pulled thread white work is stunning. I can't imagine stabbing pins into it after all the work you have done. Holiday Bliss to you dear...
