This week, I’ve been having so much fun playing with my new Easy-Macro Cell Phone Lens Band and the random craft supplies and projects that I have lying around the studio. Turns out, needles look pretty darn sinister so close up, but tiny filling stitches look even more lovely. (Fellow Downton Abbey fans may recognize that diagonal laid work from my Dowager Countess embroidery pattern.)
Of course, I now find myself resisting the urge to take extreme closeups of absolutely everything. Because, you know, details!

I love how you did the embroidery and I have a question. Isn’t that stitch the chicken scratch stitch or maybe it’s very similar. Two cross stitches over straight one? Either way, I love it. Sharon
Thanks! It’s a filling technique called diagonal laid work–each leg of the cross shape is an individual stitch.
