Once again make a cuppa of your favourite beverage and take some time out of a busy day. For a few moments let me share some highlights from the challenge this week.

I found these feathers worked by Shirley on Stitches and Life to be a very creative interpretation of the stitch.

Over on Jizee6687 there is a very interesting sampler worked by Chitra. Do visit as there are close ups of each band and some varieties are very interesting.I particularly liked the feathered version.

Once again don’t let these few samples lead you to think that these are the only worthwhile samples to be seen. Follow some of the links in the comments, of week 18 and I promise you there is more eye candy, interesting ideas and applications of the stitch. There is always something fresh to learn and see with this challenge.
