TAST 05/13/14

This week, I worked the two stitches Sharon introduced on April 29th for TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) on Pin Tangle.  (Click here for more information about TAST.)

TAST Stitch 110: Rope Stitch:

TAST #110: Rope Stitch
I worked the stitch with #8 green perle cotton.  I added flowers with detached chain stitches using a strand of #8 blue perle cotton and filled each stitch with a straight stitch, so the yellow fabric beneath was not as obvious. A small yellow bead at the center of each flower completed the seam.

It took a few minutes of playing around with this stitch on a scrap of fabric before I felt comfortable with the spacing of the stitches.  Once I caught on, it was quite easy.  I'm sure you will see it again on my crazy quilt work!

TAST Stitch 111: Zig Zag Coral Stitch:

TAST #111: Zig Zag Coral Stitch
EdMar rayon floss in a variegated blue was used to create the Zig Zag Coral Stitch.  I enjoyed using this stitch.  I have no doubt I will use it again in the future!

the rope stitch looks beautiful, the flowers too.

Rope stitch is perfect for stems, it's the next stitch on my to-do-list.
