Take a Stitch Tuesday 108 Rice stitch and varieties 109 Square Boss

My new stitches

I stitched two rows of the rice stitch (Tast 108)  - the simple version and a variety
The next two rows are called square boss stitches (Tast 109). Instead of the
simple square stitches in the middle I made 4 bullion knots over each cross.

I separated them with French knots - for a nice photo.

  1. good to read you have done the latest tast stitches but no photos of them

  3. the photos are here now, the gremlins must have been at work, I do like rice stitch especially on canvas work, the boss stitch is new to me
