This week on Take a Stitch Tuesday ..... #5 ..... Herringbone stitch
I drew two (sorta) parallel lines and followed this tutorial.
Here it is after the lines disappeared. It looks alright to me, but I think I need to practice this stitch a little more. Next to the herringbone is the TAST Stitch #1 - Fly Stitch.
Here is my sampler so far of the stitches, with the exception of the cretan stitch which is not shown.
