Ukraine, from Iryna ~ fancy twisted interlocking stitchwork to join two pieces of fabric. Picture is big enough that I can see where the needle goes and how the thread wraps around in this embroidery technique. Try this to put together knitted or crochete
complex stitches made up of smaller parts. Try sewing a decorative stitch withe the zigzag machine, then further embellishing with hand embroidery. I may have to try this some daywhen I get really adventurous-hope I can learn to do these stitches.
