The Wig Maker

O'jishi from Leigh Designs' 

Needle Works has a lovely pair of stitches diagrammed on their blog as part of their Share a Stitch Sunday program.  First they've diagrammed Cashmere Blocks, which is the same stitch I used on O'jishi's background (photo above).  It's a lovely lovely stitch that I associate with Wendy Harwood's designs as she used it for backgrounds quite often.

Secondly, Colleen has beautifully diagrammed what she calls the Wigmaker's Stitch, which is exactly how I was taught to make fringe.  This stitch makes wonderful hair and beards, as you can see in this recently finished auction for Tony Minieri's "Ancient One."
