I liked this stitch from the moment I made the first one. It is especially nice on curves and circles. Perfect for cq blocks, too.

That's a good stitch on a curve. I'll have to remember that!

This is a lovely yet simple stitch. How fun to try so many different stitch styles.

Very evenly stitched and looks lovely in the soft variegation.
The stitch can be altered to so many designs and lengths too. I like using the perle thread for TAST stitching.

It's a stitch I use often in hand sewing. It's so versatile.
