TAST 43 & 44

TAST Stitch 43: Buttonhole Wheel Cup

I enjoyed creating the Buttonhole Wheel Cup this week. 

It was worked with DMC size 5 pearl cotton #4040.

The texture is so much fun!

TAST Stitch 44: Crossed Feather Stitch

I worked the Crossed Feather Stitch twice.

First, I used blue Finca size 8 pearl cotton with DMC size 8 #605 pearl cotton.

Then, I used just the DMC #605. 

I plan to work the Plaited Feather Stitch to share next week.

TAST stands for Take a Stitch Tuesday, a personal challenge to learn a new embroidery stitch each week (or one a month - you may go at your own pace.) TAST is offered by Sharon B. at Pintangle.com and you may learn more about it and find the stitches that have been introduced so far here. There is a TAST Facebook group here.

In celebration of TAST's 10th year, Sharon B. is sharing a series of interviews with TAST participants. The most recent interview was with Angela of Princess Bubbles Creates. I love seeing how Angela incorporates the TAST stitches into her work! You may read the interview here and find Angela's blog here.

Thank you for stopping by!

Thank you for promoting TAST, and all other challenges you take part in.
The three TAST stitches you have worked here are great, especially the cup looks majestic! Mine tend to flop over!

Great stitches. Love the way they both look. The buttonhole wheel cup is really neat though. Looks like a birds nest.

The buttonhole wheel cup is a stitch I've always meant to try and now I'm inspired to perhaps include it in my current project. Thanks for the reminder!
