PIN STITCH

Have you ever done the PIN STITCH to anchor your floss?  This technique is great for confetti stitching and for those single stitches out in the middle of nowhere (stars, etc.).  This stitch can be used on Aida and linen/evenweave when stitched over two.  better-cross-stitch-patterns.com has a great tutorial on how to do the pin stitch.
