TAST Palistrina Stitch

Finally I have had a spare hour to do my sample for this weeks TAST stitch which is Palistrina.
I don't remember ever doing this stitch before but I really like it .
It was easy to learn and I liked the way it allowed me to do curves.Once again I have used a variegated thread -this time it was a hand dyed silk thread called Marakesh from Colour Streams which is an Australian Company.
I love the Marakesh colour and I have silk thead - fabric -silk ribbon and silk tops all in this colour.
I purchased these all from the Thread Studio in Perth.
I haven't used them much because I just love looking at them.
I have used a 28 count even weave natural coloured fabric.
