This year I’m going to use the TAST stitches on projects I’m working on. The knotted feather stitch was perfect for my 4th Crazy White block. I used white perle 5 for it.
This is a progress photo
of the cross stitched butterfly. It’s stitched with cotton a broder with waste
canvas attached to my block. I found the butterfly pattern in my book ‘Merk -
en stoplappen’ by M.G.A. Schippers-van Lottum.
And here’s my butterfly
after removing the waste canvas.
This week’s TAST stitch
is inverted feather stitch, a new stitch for me! I used it to connect block 1
and 5 of Karen’s class embroider, embellish, create. I used white perle 8 for
it. It was not such a good idea to use it this way, I had to stab stitch it
with all those layers of fabric.
Here's a detail of that seam, I think it looks nice for a first time.
Of course I want to
experiment with the inverted feather stitch, but I promised myself not to
stitch TAST samplers. I hope to share my solution in a few days.
