August 28, 2014 - rice stitch

Wednesday Whimsies - August 28, 2014 - Rice Stitch

I'm right in the middle of the ANG Seminar in Anaheim, CA right now and having a ball.  Two days of my class Pinkletoes are finished and we still have two days to go.  Today is a break in schedule. I hope to get around to doing a post just about Seminar but we'll see. For some reason when my fingers are stitching they can't be typing - hmmmmm.

The rice stitch is featured this week.  This stitch is so easily adapted to all kinds of situations.

It can be made much larger and cover any square or rectangular shape.  Yes, it can be other shapes also, but those require a little more fiddling with.  

The stitch can also be crossed multiple times depending on the length of the cross-stitch legs that are being covered.

Another option is to use different thread colors or textures in the crosses to add yet another look.

Have a great day and I'm going to go down to the shop or book store and get into some trouble!

Stitch with a smile!
