TAST #90 Twisted Satin Stitch with Beads

Have you ever wanted to learn new embroidery stitches? Then head over to Pintangle and join TAST, Take A Stitch Tuesday.

TAST #90 is called Twisted Satin Stitch with Beads.

This is a version of the last Twisted Satin Stitch, and a bead has been added.
The longer the stitch, the more the beads move along the stitch. That undulating line of beads is quite nice, I think.
Angela at Princess Bubbles Creates made a great observation; the beads sit very snug and show their nice side. So now I know how to avoid beads that turn their hole upwards. Thank you, Angela!

The back of the stitches look quite good, too. Don't you agree?

Your beads behave nicely and I like your herringbones at the backside!

I have been trying to make beads behave well for a long time; I think this is the best solution!

Thank you, Chitra, but they are nothing compared to the fantastic, festive design you created.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, aren't beads nice to add a bit pizzazz to a dull surface.

Beautiful with beads.

The bead work was fun to do and would be perfect on a free embroidery where the beads slide along long stitches.
