This stitch is typically used for leaf patterns. It throws out a padded effect on the motif. The stitch looks a bit difficult, but has no complications when you start to stitch. In fact, you will enjoy it as you see a beautiful, richly filled leaf emerging as you go along. I have used a leaf pattern to illustrate .
Couching and variations by Jan Beaney Photos by Michael Cole Couching is a useful, versatile and easy stitch. The main couching stitch uses two threads and two needles. A thicker thread is positioned or 'laid' on top of the fabric and the thinner thread is stitched over it to hold it in place. Remember to keep the main thread fairly taut as you stitch it in order to ensure a firm line.
On the last seam I did a Double Feather Stitch with Colonial Knots. Then before adding embellishments I cut a window template to help place them, which is just as well because I found that the flower trail was cramped on the edge, fortunatly I had enough in the seams to make the heart about 1/4 inch bigger which gives just enough extra space so that it isn’t cramped. To Draw a basic heart shape Draw a square and then draw a half circle on 2 edges…to make it slightly more shapely, I then deepen the indent at the top just a little and slightly curve the point at the bottom, curving the bottom or just snipping of the very tip of the point will prevent the point poking through the fabric when you cover it. Trace the heart onto template plastic or any stiff plastic.

You will then see how the same stitch could look differently wtih each pattern. I will follow a slightly curved line.
Oyster stitch is complex looking, but infact easy. It is a combination of a single rossette stitch loop and the lazy daisy. This stitch is where lazy daisy stitch encircles the rosette stitch loop, or in other words, the rosette stitch fills the lazy daisy. You get a slight embossed feel from this stitch and can be used for small petal or leaf , or any similar formations. You need to know the rossette stitch and lazy daisy to be able to do oyster stitch.

These are my first lot of Knotted Buttonhole stitch For the second band I added 2 extra buttonhole stitches to each step. For the third band I added 2 extra bottonhole stitches and flop flopped the stitches from side to side. For the fourth band I did the buttonhole stitches in clusters of 3 before looping them together. The change of background colour is for the change of the month.
