Stitch of the Week: T Stitch
The T Stitch is an open stitch that can be used for stitching angel wings, lace, and small details like flower buds, glasses, and eyeglass lenses. It is used for filling in areas where you would like to show the canvas as well as the stitch. It's an excellent stitch for an open background. You should use a color that closely matches the painted background to make sure that the canvas that shows through matches and/or compliments the thread you're using. We used DMC Overdyed Perle cotton on top of a rectangle that had been painted red for the middle example shown above. This really created a lovely effect.
For angel's wings use Snow, Kreinik #12 or #8.
