stitched by sue tortoise
I love this gorgeous stitchery by sue tortoise. Such a sweet pattern, that she created herself, and such lovely colors. Sue even created her own stitch for this piece, she calls it a "pineapple stitch", and says it is "a slight variation of French stitch, a canvas-work stitch, adapted for counted thread embroidery on fabric." You can read more about pineapple stitch on her blog. Gorgeous work!
Edit - March 22, 2013: Sue wanted to clarify that she did not create this stitch, but that it is an adaptation of several stitches. Sue was even kind enough to create the following stitch diagram for the "pineapple stitch" and share it with the group!
