TAST2012 Week 29

This week the name of the game is Basque Stitch, a form of the lovely twisted chain stitch. I have seen lots of wonderful interpretations of it on Sharon's blog Pintangle.

Right now my stitching must be done in short and sweet sessions and I came up with the idea of making a birthday cake with burning candles.
Let's celebrate the 100th anniversary of HEMSLÖJDEN! Long live FOLK CRAFT!

  6. I thought the Basque stitch looked like runny icing and candles, and the flames could be made with chain stitch.
    A cake like this might not be delicious or yummie, but it sure is non-fattening!
    Happy stitching to you all!
