Drizzling

No, it is not raining in Chilly Hollow. I'm watching Rachel's drizzle stitch video.

See the green hill the lion is sitting on?  That's the 17th Century version of drizzle stitch.  These days the stitch we call drizzle stitch is a sort of cast on bullion but in Queen Elizabeth I's day, this was drizzle stitch.  For comparison purposes, here is what we call drizzle stitch in the 21st Century.  In both cases I suspect the right thread is key, so you may have to experiment a bit to find just what works for your canvas.

So pick your century and drizzle!  LOL
