Stitches 71 to 74

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Four samples for TAST this week with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle
Sharon presents a new stitch challenge every week.  Hoping to catch up some day.

TAST Stitches 71 to 74

I especially liked all of these four stitches, although some were a little more time consuming than others.

Stitch 71 – Bullion Buttonhole Stitch

This one takes a little extra time but easy combination of the buttonhole and bullion stitches.

Stitch 72 – Wrapped Coral Stitch

I found this easy to do and I like the looks of it too.

Stitch 73 – Portuguese Stem Stitch

This one I like a lot even though I did not do the second wrap when I stitched my 4” frame.
It was a few days before I got back to it and decided to reread the instructions before doing the centre swirl, and that is when I noticed my boo-boo. Much nicer with 2 wraps.

Stitch 74 – Zig Zag Chain Stitch

This one is OK but I found it a little harder to keep it neat looking. I like how it looks with 2 or 3 rows close together.

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,
