WIPW - 'Made in Britain'

WIPW, stands for Work In Progress Wednesday, and is a way to push yourself into progressing with a needlework project, publish it on your own blog, then link back to Pintangle so others can see.

My WIPW this week is Made in Britain, or rather Made on 'British Rail', as I travelled through the country by train while working these stitches. They are TAST stitches: #66 Coral, #74 Zig-zag Chain and #76 Vandyke.

    1. Zig-zag Chain is easy but looks complicated.

    1. I have drawn the design with a charcoal pen; you erase it with a hot iron,

    1. Thank you, Shami. Recently I have not had the time to make a 'project piece' with the TAST stitches but just worked the sampler. That is why I want to add as many TAST stitches here as possible.
