Wheatear is also a stitch that works well on counted fabrics, and in this piece, HGK Handmade has experimented with a number of variations.
Isolated wheatear stitches also work well as single units, as in the red stitches on this dragon.
And Magpie's Laundry has used massed wheatear stitches to good effect in this picture of an anthriscus plant.
We'd love to see how you have incorporated wheatear stitches into your embroidery.
