Fly Stitch samples

Fly Stitch has so many possibilities!

Fly Stitch, alternating up and down, with French knots. Lots of visual action.

Reversed Fly Stitch -- one layer going one direction, another layer on top going the other.

I certainly feel I know this stitch better even though I did it last year.

I need more variety of threads! Still haven’t done my shopping.

    WOW> I must say you did a great job. Love the reverse fly stitch. I am going to use that one and embellish the stitch on one of my blocks. XX KATHLEEN

    Thank you! I really like the reverse, also. It was kinda tricky to figure out the spacing on the first row for me. I’m catching on that working the variaitions is what’s going to turn the tide for my CQ confidence!

    Great job – your stitching and keeping this re-run site organized. I love the effect you’ve created by using a lightly patterned background and your stitches look perfect. I’m still trying to organize myself. This weekend discovered that even though I live in a large metropolis, there is NO WHERE to buy supplies, except online. It’s sad, really.

    Thanks, Sarah T! I’ve always been a floss person but I’m quickly changing to a single-strand anything person. So much easier to deal with. I am going to order some coton a broder from somewhere. Have you looked at Hedgehog Handworks? There’s a link at Mary Corbet’s Needle n Thread site. I got an awesome hoop from there. –g
