Take a Stitch Tuesday

Stitches 75 to 79

Five more samples for TAST this week with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle

Sharon presents a new stitch challenge every week at Take a Stitch Tuesday.

TAST Stitches 75 to 79

After practicing the stitch around a 4” frame, I try to come up with a design using that stitch. Some of these were a bit of a challenge.

Stitch 75 – Woven Zig-zag Chain

I don't know if I did this one justice, not hard to do but it did take a good amount of time.

Stitch 76 – Vandyke Stitch

I found this easy to do and I like how it looks.

Stitch 77 – Woven Cross Stitch

Really couldn't think what to do with one. Suppose the little crosses could have become flowers.

Stitch 78 – Cloud Filling

Good filler, the hardest part is keeping the stitches at even distance.

Stitch 79 – Chained Cross Stitch

Had a hard keeping a straight line, I liked it curved better.

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,

The Vandyke stitch is really neat, I think you really need an even weave fabric for the Cloud Filling and I am impressed by your Chained Cross stitches on a curve - I need to try that one.
