Ceylon stitch is a medium detached filling stitch. Medium because there are threads going across the back of the fabric when you stitch it.I found two variations - one which starts with a bar and one which does not. Tricia wilson has a nice little tutorial for the non bar variation .
Wouldn't you like to see my attempts?
So , that's it for the time being. I've added one more stitch to my kitty. Hope you too will try this out.
Love,luck and sunshine,
