TAST stitch 99 is Eastern stitch and TAST stitch 100 is beaded Eastern stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
I stitched 2 samplers side by side on 14 count Aida, both with the same threads. This one is done in perle 12 with 2,5 mm beads.
The next one is done in perle 8 with 2 mm beads.
This one is done in perle 5 with 2,6 mm beads, I made the stitches a bit bigger.
My last design is done in Stef Francis perle 5. It’s a combo of 4 detached chain stitches as the foundation for the second part of the Eastern stitch.
The finished design. I used 2,6 mm beads.
