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.

How creative!

Did the train zig-zag too? What a nice reminder of your trip.

This looks very nice indeed! Especially like your zig zag chain along the coral stitches.

I love the braided middle part of those stitches.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.

Queeniepatch said...

No, but it was delayed in true fashion!

Zig-zag Chain is easy but looks complicated.

great piece of stitching Queenie, colours lovely too. Is it just a white crayon you draw your design with? please.

Susan Hook said...

Pretty as always!!! Waiting for the finished one.

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

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.
I visited London, Birmingham, Norwich (and various places in Norfolk) and Stowmarket. Always lovely!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

Queeniepatch said...

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.

Queeniepatch said...

Ha, ha! You will have to wait a long time for this to finish.

Vandyke stitch is great for leaves! It's coming along nicely.

Anita said...

beautiful piece in progress...Love the zig -zag chain scallops...

Queeniepatch said...

I like the Vandyke stitch with its braided centre; perfect for leaves.

Thank you, but you can see that I have missed turning over and under the line of Portuguese stem stitch.
