The Feather Stitch for Tuesday's Seam Treats

One of the girls at the Hand Embroidery Yahoo Group pointed out to me that if I do 3 seam treatments a day for 100 days, that would be 300 designs! Somehow, that sounded really cool to me so that's what I'm shooting for! Since I only offered my readers 2 yesterday, I'm giving you 4 for today!

Sharon set the theme for today's seam treats by discussing the Feather Stitch on her In A Minute Ago blog. I love the feather stitch. Not only is it a beautiful stitch but it's so much fun to do! So I've charted the basic feather stitch for you and then am offering 3 different embellished versions.

Enjoy!
