To fully enjoy the embroidery fun of TAST, go to Pintangle.
TAST #68 Slipped Detached Chain Stitch also has the name, Tulip Stitch. Guess why?
Right, it resembles a tulip, and I just had to make some Dutch beauties
link on my previous blog post knows that:
Red tulips = undying love
Purple tulips = forever love
Yellow tulips = hopeless love
This floral field is full of love!
I used some small scraps of fabric and a bit of wadding for this landscape, rather than toss the scraps in the bin. The blue sky is of 'nylon mesh' (used for stockings and tights, and of course in Mesh craft).
Annet's idea for a spider. Rather than a cute spider like hers, my needle created a four-legged wingless fly, and in a flash it had multiplied. There is now an infestation of hairy flies on my sampler. Any suggestion for pest control? DDT? Fly swatter? Seam ripper? Or just let them be?
