  1. I am just looking at your older posts and here is already the new one of the Kafferepet and the Swedish cushion. Both beautiful. Many lovely stitches.

  3. Your satin stitching on the cushion is so neat, I always struggle to make mine look so uniform. Would you mind sharing what thread you use?

    1. Oh, thank you, Elizabeth. I thought it was worth the effort of all the work 'underneath' to get an even look on the top.
      I have used Anchor's Cotton à Broder Colour 42 (which I would call frozen raspberry).

  4. Beautiful progress on both pieces. I don't know about you, but for me Wednesdays come around quickly!

    1. I am glad to know I am not the only one to feel the speed of time; for me it is usually a state of panic on Tuesday evening!

    1. Oh, an Ikea cinnamon bun! I will soon reach my FABRIC cinnamon bun on the Kafferepet quilt and am now planning which TAST stitch to use for the quilting.

  6. Thank you for your comment on my blog I'm looking forward to watching everyone's projects grow and hope mine does too. I'm trying to do at least a couple of lengths of thread each day and hope that way the progress will be slow but sure

    1. Nice to have you onboard, I heard you joined in after being at Elizabeth's. Don't we all have too many UFOs and the Work In Progress Wednesday is such a good way to get at least a bit closer to finishing these projects off. Good luck and have fun!

    1. Thank you! I have now reached about half of the Swedish cushion and need to think up new designs for the other half, and then of course select the TAST stitches to go with them.

  8. The Siennese stitch is a great match with your pretty flowers, just dancing around them. And I like your reversed buttonhole bar. That's just one of those stitches I forget to use. I think I need to print a list of the TAST stitches as a reminder!

    1. It surprises me that you not already have a printed list! I have a notebook but my plan is to make a file with printouts, notes and photos of my work. One day...

    2. Great idea to print an example of the stitch with the list, it makes it more easy to see which stitch to use!

    1. Thank you! Today I am pondering how to progress on the cushion...

  10. I should make more use of the different stitches we have done in TAST like you do, but I seem to do the samples and that's it. I tend to use the same old stitches over again [probably because I can remember how to do them]

    1. If only I could identify, name and remember how each of the 100 stitches are worked without having to look at my notes, I would use them much more! The cushion project is a good way to rack the brain!
