Stitch 16: Wheatear stitch

I had fun playing with the wheatear stitch.

I didn't do anything new with the stitch itself, but I tried a new thread and just love stitching colors.

(Click photo to see the stitches more clearly.)

Wouldn't you love grasses (wheat or otherwise) in all those colors? The five multicolor stalks on the left and the  yellow and orange, three on the right and one in the middle are done in perle 8 or a craft  rhread close in size. The blue and maroon are done with a knitting thread. It's basically a white heavy thread (perle 3 size maybe) wrapped in a fine color threads. It's not a tight wrap, so the color threds shifted. At first I was disappointed, but after looking at it a while, I decided I like the worn look it creates. Sometimes the color rubbed off on the white thread, adding more color depth.
