This week, we’re going to take a wee break from looking at needlepoint stands. Instead, we’re exploring the rice stitch. It’s one of those versatile stitches that you can use in a variety of places on your needlepoint canvases. It makes a terrific border. Some people even use it as a background stitch! The rice stitch is a member of the crossed stitch family. There are oodles of variations of this stitch.
Watercolours is an ahhhh-mazing hand-painted long-staple Pima cotton thread from the CARON Collection. It’s available in a multitude of colors – from subtle monochromatic to more wildly variegated hues. It comes in 10-yard, 40-yard, and 100-yard skeins. My very first experience with variegated threads was with Watercolours, so it has a special place in this stitcher’s heart. Wanna learn more about it? 😉
