Welcome to Sunday Stitch School where we have reached the letter X of the alphabet.
What X stitches are there? Well the Cross Stitch forms an X, but we have already worked both the standard Cross Stitch and the Upright Cross Stitch.
Question: So what do to?
Answer: Create a new stitch, of course.
Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, got the first Nobel prize in Physics for his discovery of the X-ray. Who has not been X-rayed at least once? Being able to see the condition of our teeth and bones e.g., has helped hospital staff give us the right medical attention.
So let's honour this discovery and invent the X-Ray Stitch. Or am I too late? Maybe this stitch already exists. One thing is for sure, there will be no Nobel Prize in Embroidery for this.
Mattia suggests Point de Rayon X as a French name.
I put together a cross with some straight stitches:
Both the cross and the rays can be of various lengths.
