TAST #67 Fancy Hem Stitch

In the beginning of May, Sharon of Pintangle blogged about her Sampler Band and showed us a section with a fantastic stitch, Fancy Hem Stitch. In answer to our request she added it to the list of TAST stitches. Thank you, Sharon.


TAST #67 is therefore the beautiful Fancy Hem Stitch.
Here on my sampler:

On Sharon's Sampler Band she used it as a filling stitch, which is very attractive.

I thought I'd use it in a curve, and made these lines:




























For a bit of extra glitz I also stitched two parallel lines with metallic thread and then added some golden beads.
