The challenge for this month is to combine two or more of the embroidery styles of your choice in one piece. The idea is to think out or the box
For instance combine needleweaving and chicken scratch, or Pattern darning and found objects or Asissi and laid work patterns.
These are just a few ideas but the combinations and possibilities are endless.
Lately I have been exploring stitching a small cloth that I originally patchworked together then taking the silhouettes of a leaf shapes stitched in the negative space like you would in Assisi embroidery. Only this time I worked off the grid and stitches are definitely not evenweave stitches.
I am still working on the piece so I will see how it develops.

How to participate in the stitch explorer challenge
Stitch some samples that push this embroidery style
