Taking an Idea and Running with It

If you don't make up stitches for your own designs you probably have no idea how a stitch a stitch guide writer sees somewhere changes and evolves as it is tweaked, played with and tested with various thread types and weights. Ruth Schmuff shows just how this happens on her blog.

The stitch Ruth talks about was used with the addition of an additional step that adds straight stitches on top (I think) and the use of two different threads for the moon on her newest mystery class, Zecca's Blue Moon and Owl.
