TAST Bonnet Stitch
(click on photo for bigger image)
I machine stitched all over the sample in matt and shiny thread, using straight stitch and a greek key pattern, to help merge the bonnet stitch into the background. I really like the texture I got where the machine stitching went over the bonnet stitch worked in wool. Then I added wavy lines in bonnet stitch in cotton perle, to make a better design. I enhanced the bonnet stitch with french knots.
I like this better!
