TAST Week 17: Wheat Ear Stitch

The Take a Stitch Tuesday stitch this week is Wheat Ear Stitch.  I stitched two Wheat ear stitch samples this week.  The first one is a collection of wheat ears like an emblem on a crest or a flag.

The second is more experimental, it is made up of wheat ear stitches in different threads layered on each other.  I used the threads left over from my Cobblefield Road needlepoint project giving it an undersea coral garden feel.
