TAST Week 17 has wheatear stitch as the chosen stitch. This is one new stitch for me and the challenge was all about learning how to get it right. The stitch as the name suggests looks like wheat when done in a series.
Sarah's hand embroidery tutorial on the stitch extremely helpful. The stitch as I have discovered after many searches and tutorials later is best done from top to bottom.The stitch has been easy to learn and fun to work with however, for a beginner practise is required to keep it even throughout.
Would also like to share here a work in soft pastels.
