Pekinese Stitch

I’m working on Leaf 3, because Leaf 2, which is almost finished, has to wait on the purchase of more thread on Wednesday. I’m doing Pekinese stitch, which is quite fun, and wonderfully variable, depending on what threads are used, how tightly stitches are pulled, and the size of the back stitch. (If you click the link, you’ll need to scroll down a bit for the Pekinese stitch.) Click image for larger size.
