Couching Stitch – TAST 10

Take a Stitch Tuesday week 10: Couching Stitch. Couching on a Couch. So I made it to week 10! That is longer than the “no sweets” challenge of 2018 lasted….3 weeks.

Cretan Stitch – TAST 9

Take a Stitch Tuesday week 9: Cretan Stitch. Back to the earlier cabin block. I had the idea that I could use Cretan and Herringbone stitches in a combo to create something that would resemble a fence, then the plan was to layer in trees to make a forest scene.

Fly Stitch – TAST 3

The third stitch in the Pintangle TAST Challenge is Fly Stitch. I had a lot of fun with this stitch on the table runner.

Blanket Stitch – TAST 2

The second Pintangle TAST stitch is blanket stitch, or buttonhole stitch, as it referred to sometimes (and apparently there is quite a debate on the name in stitching circles…I am new enough the embroidery world to not get to have an opinion yet!).
