In the midst of all the things I’ve been busy with these days, it’s been nice to take a break at night and sit and embroider while my husband watches TV. The “Take a Stitch Tuesday” challenge sponsored by pintangle is proving to be lots of fun. This week’s stitch is the Chevron stitch. It’s a rather rigid stitch and not one that I thought would be very interesting. But it turns out that I did enjoy playing with it.
I found that it works really well to fill four-sided geometric shapes. All of the zebra except the eye and mane are chevron stitch. The boldness of her black and white appeals to me and I like how it looks against the yellow chair. If I do finish it up for a wall hanging, I’ll use this yellow color. Or I may save it as a page of a book, should I have enough samples from this challenge to make one.
