TAST Week 28 Sheaf Stitch

The stitch for this week is Sheaf Stitch ---
This is another stitch that I hadn't done before -but I had heard of it.
Sheaf stitch is an easy stitch to do and it seems to flow along very easilyand I think it would lend itself to a variety of designs.
I haven't been very creative this week with the sample I just let the needle and thread do all the work and this is what I ended up with.
I may come back later and do another more interesting sample but for now this will have to do.
I have used an even weave linen and several different variegated Valdani Perle 8 threads.

I love the way you've made the stitch fly!

That's just what I was thinking, looking at the pic. The horizontal ones look just like birds in flight - I think that's being very creative! Val
