Feather Stitch – TAST 7

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.

Chain Stitch – TAST 6

Take a Stitch Tuesday week 6: Chain Stitch.  I struggled with this stitch, not because it is technically difficult, but because I had a hard time getting inspired with the stitch.

Herringbone Stitch – TAST 5

Take a Stitch Tuesday week 5: Herringbone Stitch. My kids like to refer to this stitch as the “hairy bones” stitch. It took me a few tries to get the outcome I wanted, but ended up with double layer, quadruple herringbone stitch.

TAST: Take a Stitch Tuesday Challenge 2018

As I have posted, hand embroidery has become a passion that I fell into a little over a year ago. This year I stumbled upon http://www.pintangle.com where Sharon Boggon has a wealth of information about hand embroidery stitches and crazy quilting. She runs a “Take a Stitch Tuesday” challenge where each Tuesday a new stitch is announced and participants find a way to practice it or incorporate that stitch into a project. I have elected to work on a holiday table runner, adding a new stitch or pattern to the runner to be enjoyed Christmas 2018.

Running Stitch – TAST 1

The first Pintangle TAST stitch is Running Stitch. Seems simple enough, I looked into some inspiration from Sashiko stitching to learn something new. One skill (or practice in my case!) is to get all the stitches the same length and cross without overlap.
