Week 26 of the #YearOfStitch : Chequer Stitch

Do you know what today is? It’s the HALF WAY MARK! Can you believe that shit?! We are halfway through 2015 and halfway through the year of stitch. Amazing how time flies when you have a needle in your hand. 

That means there will be a newsletter coming out in the next few weeks with FREE PATTERNS so be sure to sign up today

This is a super fun stitch that, after many tests, I think looks best in one color but I leave you to decide what feels good to you.

I like to start with the short stitches

these are all just backstitches

as many as you like

then move on to the cushion stitching

I started out with black and white because it is called a chequer stitch but then I decided you would be able to see the pattern more if I stuck to one color … 

I love the look of it in a single color.

Happy Stitching Friends and congratulations on making it halfway!!!!
