TAST stitch 42 is a very easy quick stitch to work so for those who need catch up time just jump in and do it. Fern stitch consists of a simple arrangement of 3 straight stitches but this deceptively simple stitch is ideal to use in floral sprays, Christmas wreaths and if worked in single units as bird foot prints across a sandy beach scene.
Also the there is also a beaded version of Fern Stitch which I am sure crazy quilters and those who like richly decorated surfaces will enjoy.
