Here is my Take A Stitch Tuesday work for this week - Half Chevron Stitch. I enjoyed working this stitch, it is not difficult and it works up fairly quickly. To me it is a marriage of the Chevron and the Cretan stitches - half of each. I explored several different weights of thread and reversed, layered, and stacked the stitch. I've used Perle 8's and 12's and once again one of my most favourite threads - Stef Francis hand-dyeds. I think if I did more of this stitch, I'd explore more beading - lots of possibilities here!
Wishing all the Mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day. Take some time today to put up your feet and read, stitch or whatever makes you happy.
