I was going for a giraffe, but got the neck too short and the body too long. No worries. Now it’s a llama.
The embellishments on this one are varied in length causing valleys and hills.
This stitch is done almost entirely from the same side to the other. Meaning that you pretty much need to tie off, cut and bury the thread after each row. It wouldn’t be so bad in an afghan, but in a sample was rather tedious.
I really like this stitch. It went fast and looks good.
