The feather stitch is my all time favorite. Oh it will hide a multitude of sins on fabric and crazy stitching. My favorite variation is a grape vine.
So here is TAST week 4 the cretan stitch. It is not one of my favorites. It is really hard for me to do a balanced cretan stitch repeatedly. I do love it used as chcken wire fencing as several of the other folks at TAST showed ~ I tried but ripped it out. Still working on that one.
So Now with this TAST week 5 entry I am caught up again.
This week is the herringbone. Easy to create, not so easy to repeat over and over as a balanced line of stitches. (**in case you haven't figured it out yet ~ I am a Libra which means balance is EVERYTHING is me. I absolutely suffer pain trying to do anything asymetrical.**)
So here is my creation with the herringbone stitch. It is a pretty one to do completely in beads.
So now I am caught up ~ AGAIN. Maybe for a few days.
Here is a view of my first page of my sampler book I am doing. I will go back a put the names of the stitches in each square. I have not figured out if I will just write them or what.
Now I have to go back to work on my square for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project for J A N U A R Y. Yeah I missed that deadline too !!!! But that is a whole different story... and post.
Prayer helps. I am living proof of it.
