    The paper craft is qwilling. I once took an adult ed class to learn "old" needlework techniques. We learned twilling there. We also did chicken scratch, black work, Brazilian embroidery and several lace methods. Loved that class. The teacher actually had a masters in needlework. She was quite old and still was teaching.

    New to me too.... but will have to do some research and give it a try..... several of us gals get together every couple of weeks and try a new needle technique..... we have tried needle tatting, Romanian point lace and this would fit right in.
    Some of us do hardanger , needle point, counted cross stitch, knitting, crocheting and the list goes on ..... but always willing to try something new. Thanks for sharing.

    If you know embroidery, you may have heard this stitch called the palestrina stitch. It's really quite simple, here's a video tute.

    Thanks Jan for the link. It does look very pretty and would add a lot to needlework on quilts, etc.

    I think with paper it is called "Quilling". I have a kit but have never gotten around to doing it!

    i read that article and am going to try it also. with the same thought...use in redwork. it would make an attractive & heavier line which would show up better in redwork blocks used in a quilt. or any embroidery used in a quilt. used "whipped running stitch" recently on the back of a quilt and thought...whoa...that would be sooo much nicer looking in quilt blocks. nice full looking stitch. so..will try the quiling now. i think it is even prettier than the whipped running stitch.

    Never saw it before! Pretty though. I'd say it is a keeper stitch!!
