I have made progress on several projects. First the two regular ones:
The Rope Stitch quilting on the inner section of the border is now complete.
This quilt will become a UFO, packed away with mothballs and moisture sucking powder during the hot and humid summer months. See you again in September!
After the two last geometric designs of the star and the box I thought it was time for some gentle curvy lines.
The swirl in darker light blue is #95 Linked Cable Chain.
The swirl in lighter blue is #97 Shell Chain.
The dot at the bottom is a collection of #19 Bullion Knot Stitches.
Here are some of the other WIPWs.
TAST Travel Sampler
Do you remember this cloth from last week's post?
TAST Reference Cloth
Whenever I am looking for a suitable TAST stitch for a project I go over my various samplers (there are at least five), check my pictures on the blog or go to Pintangle and search through the TAST FAQ tab. What I really want is to have all the stitches numbered, named and illustrated in the same place for easy reference. Instead of an elegant book of stitches, like many of the other TAST participants have made, I need something where I would get a good OVERVIEW.
Once upon a time I started on such a chart but the numbers changed as we had break weeks.
I have therefore started again from scratch and will fill in the right stitch in the correct box.
