Fancy Herringbone stitch

Sharon over at Pintangle posted a step by step for Fancy Herringbone, yesterday.  Here’s the link Pintangle

The coloured pictures showed it was easy to do but I printed it out in black and I’m blaming that for my little misadventure.

First up is the finished and proper design.  Very nice isn’t it.

 

and now my mishap pair.   I was so pleased with the first row I decided to do a back to back version.  When that was finished I stopped and looked properly at the 2nd one.  Messy!

I could also blame my mind for being elsewhere .. using up an enormous amount of our peaches.  .. some pics of those here

  1. While the proper one is all very nice and tidy, I truly love both of your improper ones! They are so appealing. I’m also jealous of your gorgeous peaches! I hope you enjoy them all.

  2. Improper! ..meaning badly behaved? sounds about right.
    I wish you were here to share the peaches Susan.

  3. Oh, I love the “improper” ones. And your colour choice is perfect. I made myself improper ones and still have to shoot them (I am the Stitching Lady/Anneliese). Here I am under another name.

    • I look forward to seeing your own ‘improper’ stitches Anneliese. Thanks for the link to your other site.

  4. I don’t think it’s messy, it’s development.

    • I like your way of seeing things.

  5. I haven’t even tried this one this year, but I remember it was strange. I’m behind on posting photos of the ones I’ve done. I’ll catch up one day.

    • I couldn’t find this stitch in earlier TAST lessons. Certainly not the ones I did.

  6. Nope – not a mishap at all – it’s a design element!!

    • Ah, what a kind thing to say MA.
