For those who were up-to-date with their TAST stitches but couldn't resist some more stitching, Sharon also issued a challenge to be carried out during the two week break. I fall into the category who just can't resist some more stitching, so I have completed the challenge. You can find the details on Sharon's blog here. Basically, you had to use three stitches already released on TAST and create a little embroidered project with them.
For my three stitches I used stem stitch, fly stitch and bullion knots and I created this little wisteria vine.
I drew the vine using one of Sharon's stencils (I bought a set a couple of years ago when I was making my crazy quilt) and stitched the stem using a variegated, over-dyed, six-stranded cotton embroidery floss and the stem stitch.
The leaves were stitched with exactly the same thread and a fly stitch and the blooms were also stitched with the same type of thread but in a different colour variation.
It was a fun challenge! I had a lovely Easter with various members of my family but they are all back at work/university now. I hope you all had a nice Easter too.
By the way, don't forget to pop over and read the latest TAST interview in the series to celebrating 10 years of TAST on Sharon's blog. It was published earlier this week.
