Work In Progress Wednesday - February 26

Last weekend I finished the first pages for my TAST 2012 fabric book. You can take a closer look at them in my TAST 2012 album.
My black sampler with fly stitch, detached chain stitch, half chevron stitch, feather stitch and many others.
My brown sampler with (half) chevron stitch, satin stitch, butterfly chain stitch, knotted Cretan stitch, linked double chain stitch, knotted buttonhole stitch and beaded Hedebo edge.
My red Aida sampler with cable chain stitch, Palestrina stitch, bonnet stitch, up and down buttonhole stitch, Basque stitch and a herringbone stitch border.
Parodox in stem stitch. Paradox is one of my favourite tangles. Just take a look here if you want to know how to draw Paradox, it’s very easy!
And my grey linen sampler with feather stitch, detached chain stitch, Palestrina stitch, oyster stitch, closed base woven picots, drizzle stitch, checkered or magic chain, buttonhole eyelet flower and an alternating stem stitch border.
But I also added more names of the stitches to the cover for my fabric book. 
20 names are stitched, only 28 to go!
TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle. You can find all info and links to the stitches on the TAST faq page.

Work In Progress Wednesday is a support group to encourage people to complete languishing projects, Works In Slow Progress or UFO’s.

  2. Elke keer sta ik versteld van al die verschillende borduursteken. Wat een variatie! Jouw idee om dat in een fabric book te verwerken, zit altijd ergens in mijn hoofd (en in mijn emmertje ☺). Wie weet ga ik ooit je voorbeeld volgen :-)
    Groetjes.
