herringbone stitch

herringbone stitch
I am currently experimenting with herringbone stitch, mainly because I have been inspired by our City & Guilds STITCHBUSINESS students.  Students are required to explore this stitch, and it can be stumbling block.  So I am showing that it is a very versatile stitch which can be very decorative, with lots of movement.  Worked with various thread types on calico.
