Today's stitch and stitched sample come from a new whimsicalstitch.com friend, Amy Poore, of www.apooregirlpaintsneedlepointdesigns.com. Her designs are adorable and designed to appeal to a new generation of needlepointers. They are sweet and easy stitch pieces.
Just like her designs, the background stitch is crisp and clean. The small accent and the skipped row are a delightful surprise. The stitched sample uses DMC Perle Cotton for the gray lines and Glisten for the accent stitch (gray lines).
This stitch would work on so many areas. Of the top of my head, ideas include animal fur (with solid colored wool for the gray lines) and a variegated wool for the small accent stitch or a floor with two shades of Princess Perle. It would make an interesting stitch for a larger tree or even water. I just love stitches that have so many applications.
