Time for another 100 Stitches! I have just learned how to do the Roumanian Couching Stitch. According to 100 Stitches, this stitch is useful for filling in large areas. For my demonstration, I am going to use it to stitch this heart from the Be Mine Valentine embroidery pattern:and here it is: Isn't this a beautiful stitch?! I think it did a very nice filling job! Another plus, this was an easy stitch for me to learn. To show my progress, I am starting at an area of the heart that will take a full line of stitching...this will be easier to see than a little short line like you would have at the edge of the heart. So the first instruction was to come up through the fabric at the left or top of the shapeBring the floss all the way across the shape and take a small stitch on the right or the bottom of the shape. Make sure the working floss is to the right of the needle here: Pull the floss all the way through: Now cross over the floss line and take a small stitch under the floss line: Pull all the way through: again, cross over the floss line and take another small stitch under the floss line:pull all the way through:again, cross over the floss line and take another small stitch:pull all the way through and you are right in the perfect spot to start the whole process over again: You just fill in the whole shape with these lines of stitching!This stitch is #68 and is in the Couching and Filling Stitches section of 100 Stitches.
