TAST: Roundup 3

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Huzzah for another completed pennant! I fit six different stitches on this one. That means certainly that I am not exploring them as much as previous stitches, nor am I getting much practice in with each type, but regardless, […]

TAST: Roundup

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Since it has been quite some time, I want to remind all that I am participating in this year’s Take a Stitch Tuesday (TAST), hosted by Sharon at Pintangle. Yes, yes, I am quite behind because real life got […]

TAST: Rice Stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. I got a bit behind with TAST, I think largely due to the difficulty of turning the Rice Stitch into a motif all on its own. But I finally completed it! In its full front and back glory: I […]

TAST: Arrow Stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Last week’s TAST challenge was the Arrow Stitch (or Arrowhead Stitch if stitching vertically). Here is my front and back, for posterity’s sake: This top portion has several things going on. In the left corner, I was just experimenting […]

TAST: Sheaf Stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Here is the front and back of last week’s TAST challenge: the sheaf stitch. Yes, I am beyond irked to see the dark blue thread bleed. I guess that is what I get when I use cheap threads! It […]

TAST: couching stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. So as I mentioned, I stuck with basic couching stitches – I did not couch using anything fancier than a straight stitch or two. Front and back: In this top portion, I used couching for different variations of fill […]

TAST: cretan stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. This is the cretan stitch – brand new for me! First up is the front and back. I realized with this one that my backs have improved so much, almost beyond measure since I started embroidering however many moons […]

TAST: stem stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Front and back: I wrote the phrase “left to right = below!” which will help me remember how to sew the stem stitch (the outline stitch would read “left to right = above!” though some say that they are really […]

TAST: chain stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Besides my usual haunts of Sharon’s and Mary’s websites, Summers of India had a lot of great examples! I did the “magic” chain, some whipping and lacing, barred, picot-ed, crested, zig-zagged, double-linked, and triple chain stitches. I tried out two […]

TAST: herringbone stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Front and back, for posterity;) I just kind of played around with the stitch – nothing too fancy here. I tied some, I overlapped some of varying sizes, and I used some to couch a ribbon. I began to explore […]

TAST: fly stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. I only now realize I forgot to take a photo of the back, but here is the front: This time, what I noticed was experimenting a little bit with color theory. I didn’t think too hard on it, but I […]

TAST: buttonhole stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Yes, it needs to be ironed but I just wasn’t feeling it today. Ta-da! I again attempted to use nothing other than the week’s buttonhole stitch (except the words in black), but I had to cheat a little using a […]

TAST: running stitch

You’ve read about my idea for this here, right? Ok! See all completed TAST posts here. Obviously this hasn’t been turned into bunting yet; I plan to do that all at the end. Voila! Front and back, for posterity’s sake:) The “TAST 2018” title and words in black are not running stitch, but everything else is! […]
