TAST 135-136-137

TAST stitch 135 is beaded fern stitch. I used cotton a broder and 2 mm beads for this seam on my CQ fan.
TAST stitch 136 and 137 are knotted buttonhole band and beaded knotted buttonhole band. I stitched my sampler on 14 count Aida. From top to bottom the threads are perle 5, 8 and 12. In the bottom row I also put beads on the foundation row.
TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, and embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I like the beaded fern stitch too, it fits perfectly between the seams I already stitched.

  2. I like your play with beads in the perle 12 row. I found it a hard stitch to do but you have of course managed to tame the stitches.

    1. It was difficult to tame the beaded knotted buttonhole band. I put my tumb on the bead in the correct position when I pulled the knot.
