Coral stitch

 
Stitch # 66 - Coral Stitch
also known as
coral knot, German knot stitch, knotted stitch, beaded stitch and snail trail
 
look it up here: Pintangle of SharonB
 
and you can easily stitch it, too!
 
 
I am slowly filling in the leaf
 
...and the detail:
 
 
I used the stitch as a filler
 
and what would it be without French knots
-----
not only in love with France but also with its knots

  6. Your leaf is spectacular. The coral stitch is one of my favourites. The colours you have used make a very pretty leaf. xxx
