Detail 29

This is the palestrina stitch. SharonB's had a tail (I haven't figured out quite how to do that yet). This is such a tidy stitch, and I think could take the place of the french knot and be very neat. I'm very pleased with the bullions too, having them contained in the lazy daisy hides that extra thread I always seem to get.

I love curvy lines, and had never used this stitch for them. Do you know about the video stitch library?

Yes Susan, I discovered that when I needed to know how to do the up and down buttonhole stitch. I brought my block over to the computer!
