Guess Who? Jessica

Yes, even more Jessicas this week. I told you there were more coming. Once you get the beginning done, they go quickly at least - especially the big ones.

OK, I have been following your blog for a while, and I just have to find out what a "Jessica" is. I assume it is an embroidery stitch or technique, but I cannot find it anywhere. Thanks. Amber

hi Amber-

All those circular stitches are Jessica stitches. A Jessica is one of the set of stitches called Hilton stitches, after Jean Hilton, their inventor. The whole set of stitches remind me of string art and are only done on counted grounds. They work best, especially the large ones, on canvas. I hope that answers your question.
