Here's my Herringbone sampler... at least part of it. I still have more to do but other things have been getting in the way of my stitching. Sorry, the picture isn't the best!
I used #3 and #5 perle cotton, along with some silk floss and beads. As I said I'll be doing more on this sampler but I wanted to get it up before the next one comes out!
Everyone has been doing some great variations on this stitch. To see what others have done, please check out Sharon Boggon's Take a Stitch Tuesday page for links to examples of Herringbone stitch. You'll be glad you did!
I have been away from the blog too long. We've been spending extra time on yard work and getting everything put away after Christmas. We're also coming down to the last few piles of "stuff" from our move. This has been taking way to much time and we are VERY tired of it... I hope to see the end of the reorganization soon!! When we left Colorado quite a bit of our stuff went into storage, and then some of my Mother's got added to it, and each of the boys left some boxes, too. Well, by the time we got around to moving it down to Phoenix, everyone had forgotten that their stuff was mixed in with our stuff... so, of course it ended up here and we have the task of sorting through it... and mailing it back to them or storing it here until we drive back up. Not to mention all the collections of stuff that I no longer collect... sometimes I look at it and think "What the heck was I thinking?" and then I think "WHAT am I gonna do with this?"
We just plain have too much stuff!
