When we last left Abu Gurden’s Tree of Stitches it was back in 19 April and it looked like this:
Tonight I finished the last third of the Rice Stitches and Part 5 is now completed. Rice stitches are a new stitch for me; a combination of long arm cross stitch and couchwork. I didn’t like the consistency of the two threads on the 32ct fabric so I did these stitches in one thread.
