>oooooh. Pretties! Since I don't know the silk stitch, I'm going to ask if
No, silk stitch is basically stem stitch but at a 90 degree angle. It's
very common in Chinese embroydery.
OOPS! I meant satin stitch.
I use the one for free style embroidery. I've had people think that I did
zig-zag stitch with a machine to do that stuff.
