2 in 1

So here is the second try on herringbone stitch for TAST challenge. I chose this sunset on water, so it is for the TT challenge, too.
The stitched area is postcard size and it is mounted on cotton batik.

This is so good Karin. I love that little extra touch of the birds - makes it more real.

I too love the little birds. What a sneaky way to add more herringbone stitch!

Karin, diese Idee ist Oberklasse!!!
Echt genial die Stiche so einzusetzen und eine Karte draus zu machen. Ich bin begeistert!

Very cool and I am thinking the same thing, so glad I joined this challenge, the inspiration of everyones creativity is amazing. I need to loosen up my thoughts and invite creativity in. LOL.

Oooh! I really like this! So many Herringbone stitches and so much to look at and study. You are teaching me a lot. I agree, we are learning so much from each other and improving our embroidery techniques.
