Fly stitch on blue Gingham

Last week Sharon told us there’s a re-run of Take A Stitch Tuesday in the TAST facebook group. I told myself I already finished all stitches but one (140 threaded cable chain stitch), so no need to stitch along this time. But then I remembered the unfinished TAST samplers, should I add some stitches from time to time?
So that’s what I’m going to do. On this blue Gingham sampler with long tailed detached chain stitches and woven long tailed detached chain stitches I already planned to add some fly stitches. This TAST re-run gave me the push I needed, I added 8 fly stitches in lilac cotton a broder #16.

You can follow my blog on facebook, I hope to meet you there.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. Well, I don't join this time, I only jump in if I can add a stitch to my sampler or something I'm working on.

    1. Thanks, Barbara. It was difficult to find the right colours, this fabric doesn't like perle 5!
