Here's a pic of the stuff I was talking about last post....the small swatch of cloth that I used to try out some stitches.
The vine with the 2-wrap LDBTs was done in chain stitch...then whipped. The odd stitch at the bottom right was done with a centre bullion and the added two Cast-on bits on each side.
At the top is the Double Cast-on bit.
The Bullion stitch and Cast-on stitches techniques I learned from Betty Pillsbury herself at a stitching weekend where she was the guest teacher ... way back in 1999. Best money I ever spent...and one of the most fun weekends ever!
