TAST stitch 61 is up and down feather stitch. I stitched it on block 8 for Karen's class Embroider, Embellish, Create. I stitched oyster stitches inside the up and down part of the stitch. The threads are cotton a broder.
TAST stitch 62 is raised cross stitch. I’ve used many different threads, ribbons and a fluffy yarn on my Aida sampler.
At the left is perle 5, at the right a funny fibres ribbon.
This is the base of a design I found in my book The stitches of creative embroidery.
The finished design. I added fly stitches, straight stitches, detached chain stitches and colonial knots. Perle 5 for the raised cross stitch and perle 8 for all other stitches.
A double cross stitch as the base for my raised cross stitch.
TAST stitch 63 is scroll stitch, this time I’ve used perle 5. In the centre row I added beads after seeing this sample.
This is my way of adding the beads to the scroll stitch. Take a closer look at this detail here.
I still don’t like the scroll stitch, it disorganizes very easy as you can see in the blue row.
