Couching - Week 9

OK...this was a lot harder than it looks!!! Here is my couching sample for the TAST 2012 Challenge. To see more samples go here. I would definitely not use the white Aida cloth again but a softer cotton instead!
Do people glue on their design before they couch?

Chain Stitch - Week 8 of TAST

I thought I would do an image with this stitch instead of just random stitches. I like how it turned out! Click here to view more samples of this stitch on Sharon B's web site.

Detached Chain Stitch - Week 7 of TAST

The chain stitch! The sun flower idea was from here. Thanks for sharing everyone. I am amazed at the stitching talent that I find on the TAST Challenge. I figured out how to add a bullion tip to the single lazy daisy and I did a double lazy daisy for the first time too.

Herringbone - Week 5 of TAST

On the third row (probably hard to see), I tried to do a Laced Herringbone Stitch. I am still not certain if I did it right but the last stitches look nice! I am still learning a ton! Thanks Sharon for the TAST challenge! Click on the side to find out more.

Cretan Stitch - Week 4 of TAST

I have been taking notes of the work that I don't have time to stitch so that I can access them when I am doing projects! I am 6 weeks behind but I
intend to catch up in 2!
