The TAST stitch for week 40 is beaded Hedebo edge. I added it to my black linen sampler. The eyes of the beads were too small for the cotton a broder, so I added them later with white sewing thread. I think this part is ready now. The stitches I used are square herringbone, bullion knots, cast on stitch, buttonhole wheels, pistil stitch, French knots and beaded Hedebo edge.
These are the last stitches on my brown sampler. I’m working on a cross stitched border and then I’m going to add some beads to the previous stitches. I’ll share a photo when it’s finished. The double row in off-white is done in perle 8, it was inspired by Nancilyn’s buttoned Hedebo. The other rows are done in perle 5. The eyes of the blue beads were too small for the perle 5, so I added them later with cotton a broder in the same colour.
A sneak peek of the book page I’m working on. This beaded Hedebo edge is done in Caron Watercolors.
