Bayeux Stitch Sampler

A pdf from Embroiderers' Guild, it was very kind of them to give us a pattern and very nice instructions to go with. "Bayeux stitch, which takes its name from the famous tapestry on which it is used, is an Anglo-Saxon variation of an ancient technique known as laidwork." "On the surface" - Fibretex, this looks very cool. There are more here.
This is look like an interesting book on constructing, joining and stitching a wide range of textile surfaces. And this book on endless possibilities for creating new and exciting works with fabrics, beads.

Great link! That stitch seems like it would lend itself nicely to variegated threads. Another link to add to my to-do list...perhaps it will help me put a dent in my thread/fiber collection.
