If you have the JUNE 2003 Issue of *Just Cross Stitch* magazine,
please turn to page 5.

     There is an adverti***t for DMC Fabric. On the left - side of
the page is a multi-coloured design of a flower
     and heart... in the CORNERS are blocks in purples, greens, pinks,
aqua, and yellow...

     Do you know what stitch that is?
     I do not recall ever seeing it before... but I LOVE the way it
looks!

     I really want to learn this stitch...
Do you know what it's called or where I might find a stitch
     diagram of it?

     Thanks!
     Terri

You're right, it's very cool looking.  It has a similar effect to, but I don't
think is, the Jessica stitch that Jean Hilton uses.  If you find out for sure
I'd love to know!

Terri,
I haven't seen that stitch before (even checked my Sttich Sampler book), but
you're right, it is WAY cool looking!
DMC does eventually put the charts for their "ad" patterns on their website
(remember the moon, star and rainbow block they used for almost a year not so
long ago?  it's there!) so I would guess that given a little time, it will
eventually be made available!  Site address is www.dmc-usa.com, by the way.

I believe the stitch is a variation of the Amadeus stitch.  I found an
online stitch diagram for you:

I don't get this one, could someone scan the pic and let us all see
the stitch?  (That wouldn't be a copyright violation would it?)

I haven't found any place that carries this mag either!

Which is a variation of the Rhodes stitch.  :-)

The "Amadeus" is clever.

>The "Amadeus" is clever.

From page 2 of Jean Hilton's Needlepoint Stitches: "This intriguing stitch was
developed one evening in 1985 as I as listening to the Academy Awards (does a
stitcher actually *watch* TV?) when 'Amadeus' won Best Picture.  It was for a
nest for a bead cluster."

But, IMO, the stitch in the DMC ad is a series of 4 Crescents.  ASCII chart for
the first one:  

1
3
5
7
9
11
13
15
17
     2  4  6  8  10  12  14  16  18

The second crescent is worked over the first, the third over the second and the
fourth over the third and first.

As the stitch sequence follows around the square, it could be called a Jessica,
but one that is poorly worked.  In a Jessica, as you reach the first stitches
worked in the stitch, your needle goes underneath those stitches before it
enters the ground fabric.  When all passes of the needle are completed, you
cannot tell where you began or ended.

Try something a little more rounded:

1
3
5
7
9
   11
         2    
             4  6  8  10 12

Jean Hilton has many wonderful stitches.  Many are reminiscent of 1970's Sting
Art.  Some were developed because a student made an error in following stitch
instructions. Instead of ripping it out, Jean encouraged the student to
continue in the "incorrect" way, and a few new stitches have been born.

I find it's hit or miss in Wal Mart, Danielle.. and even then it's hard to
find.  The one in Middletown keeps it with it's regular magazine selection,
while the one in Monticello has it on a rack in the crafts department.  The
place I find it most regularly, believe it or not is a small local grocery
store!

I just picked up the newest one.. do you want me to get a copy for you?

I'll take a peek at the local snack shop (grocery store) but if I
don't find one, could you at least bring it with you to the next
stitch-together?

Thanks!

Just as an FYI, a number of my *Pin of the Month* freebies use
variations on thsi stitch. ;-)

They can be seen on my website. Go to the Home page:

http://www.tinkbd.com

and go to *Free Chart Archives 2* on the navigation bar to the left of
the page.

Hint: The designs can also be used as ornements or scissors fobs....

Happy stitching,
Tink
