Another sewing method stitch

Greetings.  Enjoying your weekend?  Mine has been spent sanding and sanding and sanding and priming and sealing the monster fridge cabinet.  In the house.  What a mess.  We did get it in after cutting 4 inches off the bottom and then gluing it back with brackets.  I never saw plywood this terrible.  Hairy.  Wavy.  Rippled.  No sanding done at all.  But I made progress and will start painting it today.
I really like the blue house with these colors and think I will use more blues in this bottom area.  I'll remove the brown door frame and use a softer gray for the house trim and a dark gray for the roof.  As I was plugging along with my mind on other things, I realized I was no longer using the full stitch sewing method that CL taught me.  Could it be that after all these years decades of doing the half stitch first that there could be TWO full stitch sewing methods?  Why didn't anyone tell me?  I am so grateful to CL for sharing with me, and I'm assuming this other method is also used by stitchers, but I never found out!  So for those of you that are not hoop and stabbers (like me) and prefer a sewing method (you never pull the needle out beneath the fabric) here's what I found myself doing.
Start bottom left, bring needle to top right and insert horizontally....
 coming out at the top left....
 insert needle at bottom right to make the cross, while moving two threads over to start the next stitch.
The back looks like this.
The needle is always horizontal and pretty easy to do.
 I like it!  Are there any more?  I'll still use the half cross method but when using variegated threads, these full stitch methods are perfect.

My sister and I are still discussing the ablation and are making more calls tomorrow.  Her nurse friends told her to hold off.  They know of ablations being done all the time, but have never heard of the complete cut off involved in the AV node.  What if you enter an establishment or venue that has something interfering with pacemakers?  Not enough to harm anyone, except maybe someone relying on it working perfectly.  We know about cell phones and microwaves but what if you are near a cell tower?  Too scary.  Not enough answers.
Have a great start to a fabulous week as we approach the end of September.
WHAT????  I've been in a fog since middle of August and can't believe what the calendar is telling me.
