WIP-TAST-ic Wednesday 41

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Ok, let’s start with TAST! After gathering my project back together and scoping out Pintangle (which Sharon just revamped so be sure to check it out!), I realized that I had done several of the stitches already on previous pennants. This includes: #19 crossed buttonhole, #20 whipped chain, #26 herringbone square, #33 barred chain, and #36 crossed and plaited feather stitch. They aren’t great examples, every one, but for time’s sake, let’s just call it, okay?

You may recall that I am in the middle of a pennant of flowers, which includes: #13 buttonhole wheel, #16 satin stitch, #17 French knots, and #18 whipped wheel (seen here). There are several new TAST stitches I’ve yet to do that might fit great on the space I have left. I’m committing to figuring that out by next week’s WIP-TAST-ic Wednesday post. I am officially 15 stitches behind at this point. It feels a little daunting, since I have other projects going on as well, but with the dreary fall and gloomy winter ahead, I imagine I’ll knock these out pronto.

My BCQC block is coming along. I’d be further finished if I could just find a perle cotton in a color (and appropriate size) that fits. As a practice piece, though, I’ve decided it is what it is. I might still fiddle with it, especially as the class progresses (you’ll see some changes already if you are super detail oriented).

My guild had a huck weaving embroidery project, so I grabbed a kit. I found it to be so very pleasing! The fact that the needle never pierces the fabric ensures a quick progression and it felt really relaxing. Huck weaving is a Swedish style, and my kit came from Nordic Needle (though I can’t find it listed anymore). I am almost finished with it – just need to sew a hem and fringe the edge. My only hangup is that the particular threads in the kit were not color-safe, so my mistakes left a mark. I wonder how it will handle being washed. Find out with me next time I post about it, ha!

Oh, and my last mouse sold! Huzzah!
