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?

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