Take a Stitch Tuesday

Stitches 63 to 67

It's been a while but here are five more samples for TAST with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle. 

Stitches 63 to 67

Stitch 63 – Scroll Stitch

I like this stitch but not sure this was a good use of it.

Stitch 64– Top Knotted Buttonhole

I don't why it took me forever to figure how to wrap the needle because it is not that difficult. I like the look even if it was a bit fiddly to do.

Stitch 65 – Buttonhole Bar

This is a nice chunky stitch iand so easy.

Stitch 66 – Coral Stitch

I love this little stitch, fast and goes every which way.

Stitch 67 – Fancy Hem Stitch

My border was not too successful, I think that my lines were too close together and that my wrap thread was too heavy, so I decided to do a little sampler and try different opinions.

I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle

Check out this site as well as the comments to see all the beautiful work going on there.

Happy Stitching,

I have missed seeing your take on the TAST stitches. Good to have you back!
The Top Knotted Buttonhole stitch takes a lot of time to figure out and get the rhythm of, but once you've got it, it is a fun stitch and the result is great!

Again great samples! Love the threads you used for the fancy hem stitch.

I love how you've made each sample into it's own piece of art. The backgrounds are great and I really like your colour choices. I keep changing my mind on which is my favourite.
