TAST 2010 - Week 17 - Sword Stitch

Ha Ha!  I have the internet back at a normal speed.  Thank Goodness.

This stitch is.... I don't know how to describe it.  Different thickness of thread don't seem to have a lot of effect on the outcome.  Changes is direction can be achieved, but, I like the sword hilts pointing out rather than in.  It responds well to pattern but then again I think I like it best as a filler stitch.  It is a bit like a piano accompanist.  I will make other stitches look good but it fills the spaces with style.

I used stranded and perle cotton , DMC, Threadworks overdyed cotton thread and Caron watercolours.
