  1. Hi Sharon, I just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying these band by band posts.

    This one is great, I’ve never though of herringbone as a filling stitch, but I love the texture created here. Already I am getting inspiration for different ways to use familiar stitches.

    Thank you, CA
