Pekinese Stitch...

A few ladies wanted to know what Pekinese stitch was from my previous post, so I am showing you a couple of things that I have done in Pekinese and how to do it at the end. Christine Book was the first designer to show me this stitch.

Little cushion stitched in Pekinese. Sometimes I substitute chain stitch for Pekinese
The outline of the coffee cup has been done in Pekinese to make it stand out more.
Just click on pic for a closer look.

That's a beautiful stitch, and it doesn't look too hard to do. I can think of several places I might like to use it. Thanks for sharing. BTW Your bunny stitching is absolutely gorgeous! I've been so busy trying to keep up with the mechanics of my giveaway that I haven't had time to do my normal blogging. I hope you've had a chance to enter.

Thanks,

I just visited your blog for the first time and am very inspired by all of your work and photos! I was not aware of the Pekinese stitch and appreciate you sharing it ... I will now have to find a new project and try it out.
