For a long time I have toyed with the idea of making a summery sampler of all the TAST stitches. While packing my suitcase I found a linen serviette I had bought in a sale and took out a pen. Before I knew it I had started scribbling zentangles on it. I learned this kind of doodling from a previous post of Sharon's with a video of zentangles. Suddenly I saw the outline of a bird among the lines and knew what to do.
I put a handful of threads, a needle, a thread-cutter, an embroidery hoop and the serviette in my carry on luggage.
Once at the airport I started stitching, and then I just went on, in the plane and while waiting for connections. There was no stopping me until I hit that Wall of Heat once back here in Tokyo.
Here the nights have been soothingly coolish and my jet-lagged mind at its best, so what to do. Well continue to stitch of course!
My Catch Up Week has been used to create this bird, made up of all the 33 stitches we have used so far:
I will add more details in the surrounding with the stitches to come.
Tomorrow is Tuesday and Week 37 of TAST2012. Looking forward to it!!!
