Take a Stitch Tuesday

Stitches 52 to 58

Seven samples for TAST with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle.

Stitches 52 to 58

 Stitch 52 - Triangular Feather Stitch

This is a nice variation of the feather stitch.

Stitch 53 – Herringbone Square & Stitch 54 Laced Square Herringbone

These two give a totally different look even though they start out exactly the same.

Herringbone Square and Laced Square Herringbone

Stitch 55 - Buttonholed Herringbone

This would make a nice edging. I added the French Knots

Stitch 56 – Sailors Stitch

Nice and easy, (more French Knots, my favourite stitch).

Sailors Stitch

Stitch 57 – Sailors Edge

Equally easy, you would think I could have made the centre square.

Stitch 58 – Woven Detached Chain Stitch

A little time consuming but I like the effect.

I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle

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

Happy Stitching,

I'm not doing TAST this year, but I'm saving all the e-mails...and admiring your work. Stitches 53 and 54 look particularly intriguing. I love their symmetry. :-)

Nice samplers, you put so much work into them!

These are TAST highlights! You are SO clever at showing the stitches to their best advantage. Do you spend a lot of time planning or do you just let the needle loose?
The two colours on the Triangular Feather stitch make it look very smart.

Hi Queenie :
Thank you for your comments. To answer your question, I don't spend a lot of time planning but I do think about what the stitch could be used for from the time I see it. Sometimes, I know exactly what I will do with it as soon as I see it. I use the stitch to make my four inch border whenever I can, and usually by the time I finish that, I will have come up with an idea for design. Other times it is just more difficult and I really have to put my thinking cap on.
