Some people found my stitch challenge just now and are busy figuring out if and how they should take part. In order to give them a fair chance, this week is a break week everyone can use to get ready for stitching or even begin to catch up. Next week, there will be a new stitch. This time, one that is not a feathered chain variant.
But, this posting is also called stitch sunday inspiration. The little embroidery I show you is in fact the next section of sampler 5. I left this space blank and filled it later because it was supposed to be pictorial rather than rows of stitches. You saw how to do the stones before. later I added layers of feathered chain and woven/buttonholed chain.
