TAST 2019 - Stitches 1 & 2

This weekend I made some time to work on the Take a Stitch Tuesday (TAST) stitches that have been shared this year at Pin Tangle. The Chain Stitch and Fly Stitch were both worked onto a Valentine Fabric Postcard I am working on.

Stitch 1: Chain Stitch
I worked this stitch with size 8 pink perle cotton. I like the way the red fabric peeks out between the stitches.

Stitch 2: Fly Stitch
Fly stitches were evenly spaced above the chain stitches with size 8 green perle cotton to create leaves.

Straight stitches were added to make stems with the same thread.

The stems were topped with pink fly stitches (also size 8 perle cotton) to create flower petals.

Mill Hill Magnifica Glass Beads #10026 topped each flower.

TAST is a personal challenge to learn a new embroidery stitch each week. The challenge is hosted by Sharon at Pin Tangle.

Thank you for visiting!

One great feature of the Chain Stitch is that you can get a peek of the fabric it is stitched on!
