Playing around with herringbone stitch

I am fascinated with herringbone stitch - it is so versatile.It serves you well as a filling stitch.

This was one of the patterns I embroidered on my bedlinen.

In India, herringbone stitch is an integral part of embroidery - especially kutch work.

You can do shadow work too with herringbone. This is the front and back of a shadow worked flower.

And even play around with it to make this
The body,wings ,head and antennae all are stitched with herringbone :)

update:
Played with sequins and herringbone...

Liked this one the most

If you want to see what more you can do with herringbone stitch just visit Sharon's TAST !!
Enjoy,
Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa
