It's still not too early for holiday stuff and today's stitch is a wonderful stitch for that most wonderful time of the year. Technically, today's stitch is a small stitch but it works well on most sized spaces.
This stitch is so deceptive. It can do so much more than your typical small stitch. The stitched sample is from an ornament on a larger Christmas composition and is absolutely perfect.
Yet, this stitch can do so much more than make a sweater, coat, bag, vase, or even a window look good. I can't wait to use it for greenery with the black lines as a green wool, most likely Lorikeet, and the aqua lines as something especially Spring-y such as a pink or yellow Kreinik or Silk Lame.
