I have joined in with SharonB's Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge. The first one being Herringbone Stitch. I found an old piece of fabric which was backed with some thin wadding, and started my herringbone sampler. I practiced doing curves and different sizes - all of these stitches were done with DMC thread. I haven't finished, as I plan on using different types of thread and also sandwiching thread between the stitches - but wanted to post this before the next Tuesday's challenge stitch was announced.
