Take a Stitch Tuesday

Stitches 41 to 44

Four more samples for TAST with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle.

TAST Stitches 41 to 44

Stitch 41 – Closed Base Needlewoven Picot

I love what can be done with the Picot Stitches.

Stitch 42 – Open Base Needlewoven Picot

Time consuming but love the results.

Stitch 43 – Magic Chain

Confusing at first. Nice outline stitch.

Stitch 44 – Portuguese Border Stitch

This is a great border stitch. I played around with it, adding beads and then thought my white “wreath” had a lot of bare space. 

couching over starting stitches
I found a plastic circle in the same colour as the blue yarn and couched the starting stitches over the circle. When it was done it reminded me of a sun hat so added some stringed beads to finish it off.

I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle.

Check out the comments to see all the beautiful work going on there.

Happy Stitching,

So very pretty! I'm thinking those open and closed 'needle-woven picot' stitches are time-consuming! Well done!
