Burden stitch uses the same colours as the long and short shading, including the DMC Diamant thread at the tips!  It is such a versatile stitch as it can be shaded and turn with the contours of the design.


  1. I love the texture the burden stitch has and how you've worked in the metallic and the shading! It's beautiful!

  2. I'm not surprised you love that stitch, so do I now!

  3. wow.... this is an amazing way of using burden stitch . I find it boring but looking at your work is make me fall in love with thinking you can use it very creative. Totally gorgeous !!!

  5. Thank you all! Much appreciated, and I will be working on it tomorrow too.
