Renaissance Stitch

I just recently discovered this little gem of a stitch on Sharon Boggon's Stitch Directory!  I LOVE it!  It is called the renaissance stitch and is really very easy to do!  The picture above is Sharon's rendition!  Isn't it wonderful?  So, following are some pics that show you the basic steps.

I am basically following the seam line to help me judge placement of the middle of the first stitch and the top of the second stitch.  I also discovered in playing with the spacing that it can be made to look like a row of diamonds OR one, cohesive unit of stitching, creating a stitched version of ric rac.  I hope you enjoy!
