Old raised cup stitches

TAST stitch 85 is raised cup stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, 
a challenge at Pin Tangle.

It’s one of those stitches I use regularly, so it was difficult to decide which samples to share today. This daffodil is part of my TAST 2010 sampler. It’s a raised cup stitch made of 2 rounds with woven picot petals. The thread is perle 5. It’s my only example of more rounds of the raised cup stitch, I normally stitch only one round.
Raised cup stitch is the perfect stitch for flowers, but you can use it for other circles too. Here I used it for the wheels of a car. I stitched it on my TAST 2010 sampler in perle 5.
This detail is part of my last TAST 2010 sampler. I stitched the raised cup stitches in the spaces of the diamond stitch. The thread is perle 8.
I hope you can see two hidden raised cup stitches between French knots, bullion knots, drizzle stitch and beads. It’s part of my embroidery Touch.
A detail on my crazy patchwork ECQ1. I added raised cup stitches in the curves of the whipped chain stitch and decorated them with pistil stitches and beads.
This is my ornament Beezzz. The floral spray is made of blue raised cup stitches in perle 5.
A floral spray on my ornament Snail in the garden. It’s made of raised cup stitches and woven picots.
And here’s my most recent sample, I stitched it a few weeks ago on my garden sampler.
There are more old samples of raised cup stitch from other participants in the Flickr TAST group.
