I added a couple of lines of this pretty stitch to one of the boxes on my sampler. I used variegated silk thread although, I think this stitch may well have looked better stitched with a thicker thread.
The perimeter of the box was finished with the same variegated thread and a stem stitch. As well as working on my TAST Sampler, I have also finished the second block in my Craftsy EPP quilt. This block involved piecing columns of hexagons and then appliqueing them to a background fabric.
I enjoyed making the hexagons using some fabric scraps and I really like how the block turned out (even if it is a bit wobbly in places!) I am looking forward to making the next one!
that´s an interesting stitch and your Hexagons look very nice.
Thank you Sigrid! I always like trying the new stitches and I am enjoying learning EPP. Christine xDelete

Hi Christine,my how good is your sampler looking and i love the fabrics you are using for your hexies,well done my friend xxReplyDelete
Thank you Shez! I am pleased with how the sampler is progressing and making the hexagons is proving to be a lot of fun! Christine xDelete
Wobbly proves that it's handmade and adds charm. I wonder what your sampler might become...perhaps another needlebook....ReplyDelete
Thank you Mary Anne.... there was a time when I wouldn't have lived with wobbly but time is too short to worry about it now! Christine xDelete
Your hexagon block is beautiful Christine, perfect for those much loved tilde fabrics.ReplyDelete
Thank you Leanne! I love how the Tilda fabrics look in this block... I don't think the photograph actually shows them at their best! Have a lovely day! Christine xDelete
your tast stitching is very good, and the hexies are lovely too, I do like the hand stitching that both these projects take rather than always on a machneReplyDelete
Thank you Margaret! I agree with you it is nice to have some hand stitching as well as working on the machine! Christine xDelete

You could auction your stitch sampler after you finish it - I'm sure we'd all bid on it! :)ReplyDelete
Love the hexies too. I'm so glad you're having fun.

Lots of pretty hexies . You amaze me... just put the peddle to the metal and away you go with the next project. Hardly skipping a beat. I could learn a lot from you :) if I were a little mouse in your house! JanitaReplyDelete
Thank you Janita! I do like to do some kind of stitching every day.... it feels strange now if I don't! Have a lovely weekend! Christine xDelete
