The stitch on the Queens dress... are you saying onaway (on - a - way)? or something else.? I've not heard of this stitch before, nor can I find how it's made. Help me out please. Thank you for the video.

The technique is Or Nué. If you search for the term, you'll find lots of references to the specific technique she describes here, and to adaptations in needlepoint.

Incredible. I have always loved very old and not bold colors of wool in needlepoint. Randomly searching needlepoint videos and found this. I am so glad that you know how to do these art forms. They look very hard to do. Thank you!!!
