Here’s week 5 progress for the TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) Challenge run by Sharon from PinTangle.
|Herringbone Stitch Sampler|
This stitch is the herringbone stitch, part of the cross stitch family and for me not that difficult of a stitch.
The first row is a non counted one with exaggerated lines.
The second row was done actually counting the threads and trying to make the stitches even.
The third row left hand side is a regular herringbone that was done in one color and then a second herringbone done in between it using a different color.
The right side of the third row is a closed herringbone stitch.
Chevron stitch is the fourth row and you can tell I wasn’t counting threads!
The fifth row is a Breton stitch.
The last row is a threaded herringbone. Again I did the herringbone in one color and threaded it with a second color. I’m still using the variegated thread as in the other samples I’m just cutting the thread so that there is a difference in color.
|CQ2012 January Block with TAST stitches|
The CQ January block which is still a WIP (Work In Progress) has all of the TAST stitches on it. I just have a few more small seams to embellish and then some small embroidery to stitch and buttons to sew on. Where does the time go? I really should be working on my February block.
