Week 10 Cloud Filling Stitch

The stitch for week 10 on Sharon B's TAST2 challenge is Cloud Filling stitch.
I had to make several rows of small straight stitches that formed the base for the lacing thread to be woven through.
I decided to use a cream thread for this to give the impression that the lacing thread was floating on the fabric.
This is my sample sampler and now I am off to do the official sample.




In case you were wondering about the size of my sample sampler squares they are only 7cm square..

This is a lovely filling stitch Doreen, and you have been very even when working those little base stitches.

It looks lovely Doreen. I enjoyed this one as it is so quick and easy and would be useful in a reveal/conceal project.

Such a pretty stitch. And worked on such a small piece of fabric! I think I'd be all thumbs on a piece that small.
