Stitches 10 to 16
|TAST Stitches 10 to 16|
I did not post last week, so lots of samples this week for TAST with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle.
Stitch 10 – Running Stitch
This was inspired by this photo of a January sunset. During the summer the sun sets further to right but in winter it sets directly across the lake from our house.
It did not quite turn out the way I envisioned, maybe another stitch would have worked better.
Sitch 11 – Whipped Wheel
I learned to make these in a Sue Spargo workshop, I love them. The fluffy green one was made with what I think is called eyelash yarn.
Stitch 12 – Barred and Alternating Barred Chain
|Barred and Alternating Barred Chain|
I need more work with this one. I liked how the ribbon turned, could work for stem and leaves.
Stitch 13 – Satin Stitch
This is very difficult to do. A friend said that “That's what your machine is for”. I agree.
I do like the flowers, though.
Stitch 14 – Stem Stitch
The very first stitch I learned from my grandmother.
Here is my first embroidery, all wrinkled and stained.
|First Embroidery when about 8 years old.|
Stitch 15 – French knot
French knot is my favourite stitch ever.
Stitch 16 – Wheatear Stitch
I had never heard of this stitch but really like it. Saw the fishes on some of the blogs and just had to add some in.
I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle
Sharon is now at Stitch 68, only 50 more to catch up!!!
