TAST 2012 Week 3 Feather Stitch

This week the stitch used for Take a Stitch Tuesday on Sharon Boggon's site is the feather stitch.  Find all of the submissions here (http://www.pintangle.com/journal/2012/1/17/take-a-stitch-tuesday-week-3.html) in the comment section.  Make sure that you look at the end of the week to see most of them.

I started out by sketching ideas in two of my sketch books.  At first I thought that this would be a hard stitch to use for a landscape type picture, but I was wrong.



Then I had extra time to do my stitching.  Below are the two things I made.  I am pleased with the outcome.



Thank you to all who view my embroidery!
