Feather stitch and chain stitch are both fun to do, and a great way to fill a lot of space quickly. They both have unique shapes and texture, so in embroidered pictures, you want to use that to your advantage rather than fighting against it.
Feather stitch is probably my favourite stitch to do. It is just fun. It is the sundress of embroidery stitches. It can be casual for the beach or the park or it could dress up for church or a wedding. It is versatile and doesn’t take a lot of effort.
