Stitch Combinations 8

One of the stitches I use continually, and seek to vary, is Feather Stitch. Sometimes the variations are very slight. One day the Heavens will open, and I will have worked the perfect variation. Trumpets will sound and the Angels will exalt.

It hasn't happened yet, but I have at least grouped them together in my Stitch Combinations at Flickr.

I don't mind the top one, it also shows off well as it is on a plain background (I needed to break down a big patch). I use that combination of a Detached Chain with a long closing stitch, with a Fly Stitch worked over the top a lot. I came up with it one day out of nowhere, and love it.

Not so keen on the one below.

Back to the Vest. In some ways it is very like another one I did many years ago.

I like them both. I will probably steal them, too, since the feather stitch is one of my favorite ones. The top one looks sort of cactus-like, and I'm doing a desert scene. Thanks for the idea!

I especially like the top one and, like Susan, reminds of somehow of a desert plant. I went for a similar effect in this southwest block.
