TAST 2010 - week 15 -Ladder Stitich

It's not Tuesday till tomorrow so I'm not late!  It is a public holiday here today so I was able to sit on the verandah, under a weak sun, and stitch.  This stitch surprised me.  I thought that it was just a band stitch but that is not the case it can be manipulated to do a number of things.  Also, the type of thread you use has a marked effect on the final outcome. 

I used stranded cotton, (takes forever), DMC perle 5, boucle, thin wool, thick wool and thick threads, who's origin I have lost in the cotton box.  I tried changing the spacing, pulling the tension tighter, working a wave and then a circle.  I even tried sewing a piece of ribbon in.  Another interesting stitch.


(In my rush to catch up I forgot to link the last 4 weeks back to Pintangle, but not this post!)
