Lesson 4.....

Okay, now the fun
part.... finish filling in
the triangles :)

Bring the needle up
very close to your straight stitch...

Pass the needle under the
straight stitch... you don't go
back through the fabric...

Imagining your brought the
needle up at 3 o'clock, and
passed it under the stitch and 12 oclock....

....continue to pass the
needle under the straight stitch
at 9 o'clock, then 6 o'clock, and back
under at 3o'clock.....

...gently draw thread firm...

....and repeat the above steps.....

....then take needle back down
fabric close to where you originally
came up....(apologies for the
blurry picture!)....

....and again pull thread at back
to firm stitching.....

....and repeat whole process
over each dark square..... you can see, I made
good use of different threads.....
the main reason at the start of the project, was
for the photos, however the end result is up to you!

Enough for this week.

Next stitchalong post we
start on the centre.
