Old TAST-stitches

I finished the last 2 old TAST-stitches I had to try! The horizontal rows are embroidered in the chained bar stitch. I used blue perle 5 and a fantasy knitting yarn with a cotton variegated thread. The third one is a piece of ribbon with light brown perle 5. At both ends of the ribbon I made a French knot to secure it. The vertical rows are embroidered in the Spanish feather stitch. I started with the pink perle 5 on the left. The top half of it is wrong, but I left it to see the difference. Then I made a row with the variegated cotton thread again.I learned a lot of this challenge and I’m looking forward to the next TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) that starts Tuesday March 2. There will be a new surface embroidery stitch every Tuesday until the end of the year. Read more about this challenge on Pintangle.
