Needlebugs

Needlepoint Stitches, Needlepoint Stitch, Needlework
I don't know if I like this stitch because of its name or because it works so well for so many things! It's especially good for clothing. Use floss or some other flat fiber for the white stitches then fill in the black with metallic for a snazzy coat.

This stitchm which is so fun, was invented by a completely delightful man, Father B, and can be found in Father B's 21st Century Book of Stitches.

Father B was an avid needlepointer and designer of stitches. He was also an Episcopalian priest.

I just love his stitches, they are some of my favorites.

Keep Stitching,
Janet

I do this a bit differently, where there is only one space instead of two - and then insert a bead!! Great effect. Judy Harper
