Just Basketweave

"Just" basketweave?   Well, I wouldn't say THIS is only basketweave!

Five years ago I did a project that was entirely in basketweave.  It is amazingly difficult to work a piece entirely in tent stitches and have them look good.  I also learned about the difficulty of using a variety of thread types in just one stitch and have everything look consistent.   This link should take you to all the old articles I wrote about my Autumn Leaves piece (designed by Lani), by the way.  Just keep hitting Newer Post to follow along.
