Stitch du jour

Here's stage 2 of the book cover. I have always enjoyed doing blanket stitch. I don't know why - I find cross stitch boring, and blanket stitch is equally repetitive. However, the stitch that appeals most at the moment is herringbone, which I've sued to outline the leaf applique on this cover.

I like the other stitching next to the leaf forms - it gives extra texture to the piece.
