The photo above is a try on my stitch sampler.
This week's stitch is the barred chain stitch. I had never heard of that before and never done it either.
But doing this stitch I discovered that it was a good stitch to make a cactus with.
I am in a Fairy tale RR and on of the tales is a Navajo legend who has also desert plants in it.
That's why I made the cactus and covered several seams of course.
