Take a Stitch Tuesday

Stitches 89 to 96

TAST Stitches 97 to 103

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

I made four samples and learned 8 new stitches.

Sharon has been presenting a new stitch challenge every week at Take a Stitch Tuesday.
She is presently taking a breather but has promised to returned if there is enough interest.

There are presently 140 stitches to choose from.

After practicing the stitch around a 4” frame, I try to come with a design using that stitch.
Am really loving the adding of beads to traditional stitches.

Stitches 89 & 90 – Twisted Satin Stitch & Twisted Satin Stitch with a bead

I really like the looks of both these stitches and they super easy to make. Placing them end to end makes a nice border and would look great with beads as well. I also like how they look beaded and scattered about on their own.

Twisted Satin Stitch & with bead

Stitch 91 – Straight sided feather stitch
Stitch 92 – Crossed feather stitch
Stitch 93 – Plated feather stitch

I like all feather stitches, they are so easy to make. My sample shows the Straight sided in the border. The crossed feather stitch is in two colours and the four rows in the centre are the plated feather stitch.

Straight sided, crossed & plated feather stitches

Stitch 94 – Reversed Buttonhole Bar

Fun to stitch and lots of options.

Stitches 95 & 96 – Linked Chain Stitch & Beaded Linked chain Stitch

Can easily be made in straight or curved line.  Linked Chain in the border and beaded in the circle.

I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle.

Happy Stitching,
