Pulled Thread - Square #3

3. Framed Cross Filling Stitch

I can still remember my first impressions of this stitch, when I first stitched it in a pulled thread workshop I attended many many years ago.

After having completed the first phase (the rows), I didn't know what to make of this stitch; it was just a set of satin stitches and the pattern they created was not that impressive. But as I stitched the second part of the stitch (the vertical paths), I loved the result. 

This stitch is a little more work that the last two stitches, but the outcome is worth it.
