Ming Stitch is a delightful rounded stitch that looks like little honeycomb cells. I first learned about it from a Brenda Hart book. It’s very easy to stitch and is excellent for both backgrounds and textured areas. An unusual characteristic of the stitch is that it looks great for rounded areas.
In fact it’s a background stitch I love for canvases that have floral arrangements, especially if they are in a rounded vase. It’s a very accommodating stitch!
See the diagram below.
Come back in two weeks for the next patch in this great stitch sampler.
