A bit more work on the crazy patchwork cushion. First a wiggly line of chain stitch in a variegated perle:
Which is then loosely threaded with some fabulously soft ultramarine-coloured lightly twisted silk thread.
I like that you can get very different effects with this stitch depending on how tightly you pull the threading thread to the chain stitch foundation. I prefer mine fat and loopy!
Ignore the key – I didn’t like it even when I was stitching it down and it’s long gone!
