This week I would like to challenge everyone to try Wheatear Stitch. This was a new one on me but I think it has definite possibilities. Those little straight stitches out to the side just cry to be embellished further, don't they? lol
I am including a photo tutorial below for anyone else who is not familiar with the Wheatear Stitch and how it is done. Have fun!
Bring your needle up to the left of where you want the center of your line of stitching to be. Make a straight stitch down and to the center, bringing your needle back up to the right of where you started.
Make another straight stitch from the top right to meet the first straight stitch at the bottom. You have now formed a V with the two straight stitches. Bring your needle up again below the point of the V.
I think this is fairly clear - hope so anyway! Continue on and you end up with a line of Wheatear stitch.
