Yesterday Sharon B at Pin Tangle posted the first embroidery stitch in this year's Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge.
It's Fly Stitch.
I started off with a nice piece of Aida, thinking it would enable me to get neat, regular stitches, which it did, but they were pretty boring. So I abandoned the Aida and headed for the scraps basket. I machined some fabric pieces together and then used the Fly Stitch in various ways to create a crazy quilt style heart.
