|close blanket stitching - my preferred!|
|open blanket stitch - too open!|
|satin stitching with split stitch - too heavy!|
My dilemma this week was - how to make the area around the outside of the big leaves work for me! I started with Nikki's suggestion of blanket stitch. I worked the stitch quite open - then I decided it was too open. I then tried satin stitch as I was not keen on blanket stitch - too heavy! So I looked at how Kathy from the unbrokenthread blog approached it. I liked Kathy's approach - close blanket stitch plus it is quicker than satin stitch and stronger than the open approach I started with. Decision made - what do you think?
