Two stitches (Herringbone Square and Laced Herringbone Square) and a design challenge (Pick 4 stitches from the following list and use them in combination to create a project by April 2 The stitches are: Herringbone square, laced square Herringbone, back stitch, straight stitch, chain stitch, detached chain and French knot.): Tutorial and challenge rules are here: http://pintangle.com/2013/02/19/take-a-stitch-tuesday-stitches-53-and-54-and-a-design-challenge/

And here is my take on the two stitches... I alternated them in a "linked" border!

And here's my challnge piece. I used laced harringbone squares as daisy centers with detached chain stitch petals, scattered French knots around and made some French knot flowers at teh bottom (with detached chain leaves --- kind of hard to see those pale blue knots on that pewter fabric --- SORRY), and connected them all with back-stitched stems (which, sadly, did devolve into stem stitchnow and again...)
