Old berry stitches

The TAST stitch for week 50 is berry stitch. This time I only found 2 examples. The first one is my berry stitch sampler for TAST 2007. The size is ½ inch or 1,25 cm. The flower petals are berry stitches, the green leaves are detached chain stitches. It’s stitched with 2 threads of stranded floss on muslin.
The second one is a detail on my CQ ornament Beezzz. I used 2 different threads for the 2 parts of the berry stitch, 1 thread of DMC Jewell effects inside and perle 5 outside. The blue flowers are raised cup stitches. You can take a closer look at it here.

  1. Wat mooi weer, Annet.
    Begint er in januari weer een nieuwe TAST ronde? Misschien moet ik maar eens gaan meedoen. Misschien ook niet, want het kost vast veel tijd en ik heb nog de nodige andere dingen op mijn programma staan :-) Ach ja, zoveel inspiratie op internet... niet bij te houden, hihi.
    Groetjes,
    Paula

  3. The Berry Stitch is really encrusted and rich, especially when you use different threads for the two stages of the stitch.
    The light blue floral one, isn't that your ID-photo for Stitching Fingers?
