Take-A-Stitch-Tuesday: Latest Stitches

Hello! I know it has been a while but, behind the scenes it has been very busy here and all I have had time for this Summer is trying to keep up to date with the TAST stitches.  I have even managed to get a little behind with them too!! However, this afternoon I made the effort to catch up with the latest stitches.

The TAST Challenge is hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle and is rapidly coming to an end as the last stitch that Sharon will be sharing is the week 100 stitch.  I am really pleased to have taken part in the Challenge and I am excited that the last few stitches will fill up my latest sampler.  It can then be made into another picture to join the other two on my sewing room wall.

Here are the stitches that I have caught up with this week:

Week 94: Portuguese Stem Stitch:

I worked this stitch using a variegated fine silk thread and I really enjoyed stitching it.

Week 95: Zig Zag Coral Stitch:

For this stitch I also used a variegated fine silk thread.

Week 96: Reversed Buttonhole Bar:

With this stitch I used a cotton perle (no 8) thread in a pale lilac colour.

Week 97: Feather and Chain Stitch:

Again I used a variegated fine silk thread.

For those of you who follow my blog you may have noticed that there are a couple of stitches missing between those detailed above the those that I wrote about in my last post they are:

Week 91: Linked Double Chain Stitch:

Which I worked using a variegated cotton perle (no 8) thread.

Week 92: Closed Herringbone Stitch:

Which was worked using a variegated fine silk thread.

And, Week 93: Crested Chain Stitch:

Which was also worked using a variegated cotton perle (no 8) thread.

Clicking on the stitch names will take you to Sharon's marvellous tutorials of how to stitch them.  Hope you are all keeping well and until the next time........
