Take a Stitch Tuesday week 7: Feather Stitch. This week was a fun challenge opening with feather stitch. Feather stitch is one of my favorite stitches and allows creativity for layering, texturing and seems so organic that it stirred up inspiration for late winter and early spring flower designs to add to the table runner.

I’ll have to post pics of the flower trellis next week (while sewing TAST week 8 challenge!), but for now enjoy the blue cast-on flowers which will hopefully get a layer of snow and berries before the runner is complete.

Feather stitch in DMC Cotton Perle 5, cast on stitch in DMC Cotton Pearl 8 blue variegated with dark yellow bullion knots.
