Stitch of the Month
November 2003: Leaf Pattern

by David McCaskill

This particular stitch has many different applications.  Use it individually over a painted leaf design.  Scatter randomly over an area of painted shrubbery, filling in with a skip tent.  Arrange individually as a border, especially effective in a gold or silver metallic around a holiday design.  It can also be arranged as a trellis as I did in the model.  The trellis arrangement also gives you many options for fill-in stitches.
