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!

It is like glaze and fruit juice dripping of the layers of the cake. yummie!

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!
