I was hoping for a stitch that would look nice in the last little vacant box on my sampler and, this stitch really could not have been better.
I worked five clusters in the box using a variegated cotton perle thread no 8. I then added a bead to the centre of each of the clusters and finished the perimeter of the box using variegated silk thread.
I was really pleased with how the sampler looked and I couldn't wait to turn it into a picture to hang in my sewing room. I trimmed the sampler up and added some borders in an aqua/green solid fabric. I stretched the whole thing over an 8" x 8" square canvas and tacked the fabric to the back to hold it in place.
Now it is hanging on my sewing room wall where I can see it and look at the stitches for inspiration for other projects. The TAST Challenge is not over yet, so I will have to start a new sampler for next week..... I already have some ideas what I want to do.... it should make another nice picture to compliment this one.
