STITCH OF THE MONTH
Corduroy Stitch  Variation


The canvas above was stitched with a Threadworx varigated thread  and a solid color elongated cross stitch in cotton instead of the vertical continental stitch shown in the diagram above. 
This makes a nice background especially to depict walls and wallpaper.
