The TAST stitch for week 37 is pistil stitch. This is one of the stitches I frequently use, so it was not easy to decide which samples I wanted to share. This is part of the sampler I made for TAST 2007. Pistil stitches with cotton a broder and sequins. My complete 2007 pistil stitch sampler is here.
This sample is part of my ATC Mushroom. French knots and pistil stitches with stranded DMC color
variations, a mix of 2 and 3 threads.
Raised cup stitches with
perle 5 and pistil stitches with 2 threads of stranded DMC color variations.
This detail is part of my crazy block ECQ1.
A detail on my crazy
ornament Chasing butterflies, pistil stitches and French knots with perle 5.
This flower bud is part
of the floral sampler I made for PLOS. The pistil stitches are done with Stef Francis perle
My last sample is a
floral stitchery I made for Tricia in June 2011. When I saw Sharon’s pattern, I knew I wanted to use it for a stitchery swap. I used backstitches for the stems, leaves and flower hearts. For the petals I used pistil stitches with DMC color variations. It’s all stitched with 2 threads of stranded floss.
