TAST2012 - Week 33

Pekinese Stitch is the challenge this week. It is easy and smooth - you just need to make a line of back stitches and then work another thread underneath in loops. Read more on Sharon's blog.

I first went to the library and found a nice stitch design in Helen Hall's 'Creative Backstitch', which I used for the central motif.  Around that design I then made a few simple borders in Pekinese stitch.
