Testing new stitches

Playing with stitches 1
Crafty Daisies has a embroidery school which I really reccomend. Her instructions are very easy to follow and the designs she has made for "homeworks" are really cute. I downloaded two of the homeworks and played around with old and new stitches. I sent them in and they showed up on their blog!

I have not tried the split stitch before, but I really liked it. The lines it makes are more smooth and even than lines made with the back stitch. And it is easier to make than the stem stitch. I also enjoyed the feather stitch and the double herring bone stitch. The are so decorative.
