TAST - Stitches 66 to 75.

At last I find some  time to do all the stitch samples of TAST.  I was busy for the last two months and could not do any of the previous stitch samples hence thought of doing it in one design. Will be travelling for another two weeks so have to catch up coming new stitches later. Thank you Sharon for all the beautiful stitches.

TAST week 64 and 65.

TAST week 64 and 65 are Top knotted buttonhole and buttonhole bar. Top knotted buttonhole stitch was  a bit tricky and I have to practice for sometime to get it right and I still think it is not perfect. Buttonhole bar stitch I used to do at  school  in my tailoring class as an eye for the hook instead of using metal eye.

In this design I have used all the five new stitches Sharon has introduced in the past weeks. Feathered buttonhole stitch for the tree branches,  Breton for the bird's nest, Woven detached for the leaves, Diamond and raised cross stitch for the bird feeder.

Fabric painting

As there was no TAST for the last one month I thought of doing some more fabric painting and did this  with the left over paint I had. Some how managed to complete with what I had and not very happy with the finished product  :( .   Certainly need to get more paints and brushes...

 Knotted cable chain 
is another beautiful stitch introduced by Sharon on TAST week 51,last stitch for 2012.. I really liked this stitch and I find it easy and beautiful while working with perle thread. Other stitches used from the same family are chain, twisted chain  and detached chain.
Many many thanks to you Sharon for all the efforts taken on this venture and thanks to dear friends for your encouragement.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year .

TAST week 50 - Berry stitch.

TAST week 50 - Berry stitch is very easy to do and I like it. I used two different colour perle 5 threads for the wings of the owl and perle and stranded cotton for the leaves.
I could not post the week 49 stitch, buttonhole eyelet flower , last week hence did two small flowers  in this sampler. Other stitches used are back and satin.
