I'm always looking for new, creative hand stitches to use in my project because they can really make a difference in making something unique. I love the Palestrina stitch. When you're first learning to do it, it can seem a bit more complicated than most other hand stitches but once you have it down, it's easy. It's basically a series of knots that are connected with a stitch in between. Depending on how close you put the knot, you can really change the appearance of the stitch and make it special. The Palestrina stitch not only offers a cool decorative stitch, but it gives texture to your embroideries since the stitch raises up instead of lying flat. Give it a try and see if the Palestrina stitch is for you.
