I ❤ embroidery . . . Take a Stitch Tuesday Week 26- This week the challenge stitch is Palestrina stitch. Directions are in my stitch dictionary so just follow the link. It is a stitch that looks quite complex but once you are in the swing of it is enjoyable and relaxing. This stitch is a textured stitch which holds a curve well. If you click on the image to the left it will take you to a larger view. The thickness of your thread will change the look of this stitch. ~By sharonb, pintangle
