|Palestrina Stitch Scribble|
Just a brief update for the stitching challenge. This week we were given the Palestrina stitch to learn or practice. I’ve never worked this stitch but every time I see it in one of my many embroidery books I think I need to try this stitch. So finally I’ve done it and I like it! This will definitely be going on my go to stitches list. I’m already planning on where to use it next. I didn’t experiment with it too much but will definitely work on different ways of doing it. I do prefer the close stitched ones the best.

Now the previous week’s stitch is a different story. After many attempts (at least 4) and then seeking out a video of someone working the Cable Chain stitch I finally got it. But it is not one of my favorite stitches for sure! I have seen some great uses of this stitch from others working the weekly stitches.
