Basque Stitch .... Stitch of the week

Good Morning All

The stitch of the week this week is the basque stitch and I think this one is amazing.  As you all know by now one of my favourite vintage fabrics is the antique eiderdown fabrics and paisley's in particular are a strong favourite of mine.  This stitch you can recreate that with embroidery stitches and maybe some beads......

I have bought some vintage glass beads recently and think I will be giving this a go.  If I draw a paisley pattern lightly onto some vintage linen and choose my colour threads carefull, it could look stunning.......

See what you think.  This is another great tutorial from the talented Mary Corbett.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stitching!

Can you see what I mean?  Watch the tutorial on how to stitch this green outline.
