Hi Anita!
What a subtle stitch. Very nice. What do you use it for?

Anita said...

@ Gembirdie - I use this one as a detached filling stitch like we do with daisy stitch or french knots and also fill some of the squares in trellis stitch.

@ Carol - Happy Easter to you too Carol. Have fun with this stitch!

I've stitched the fly stitch many times but never with an added twist tie. Great tutorial and pictures. Thanks!
