I abstained from stitching while I recovered from my nasty cold, and felt I had a lot to catch up on. It has been Full Force Ahead!
I selected the coffee cup block and thought the floral pattern on the china should be reflected in the quilting stitch. So what would be a good ornamental stitch? I decided to bite the bullet and use a stitch that I have had problems with in the past; TAST #82 Spanish Feather Stitch
Here, too, I felt like a 'daredevil' and challenged myself with TWO stitches, and ones that I had found troublesome in the past.
TAST #69 Buttonholed Double Chain Stitch,
I still found it tricky to do and as you can see it is not 'perfect'. The Buttonholed Double Chain is made up of two rows, well that is what double means, isn't it?!, but I tried to add a third and fourth stitch to fill in the bottom part of the design. Not so neat, but I'll let it pass.
I have to accept that these two stitches are still a challenge.
