The Swedish Cushion
I have not made a great progress, but added two TAST swirls:
#50 Inverted Feather Stitch (on the right)
#52 Triangular Feather Stitch
TAST Reference Chart
I have now completed the first panel of this handy reference chart of TAST stitches. It contains 81 stitches and I am sorry to say I had to look up the instructions for 24 of them!
What I really enjoyed though, was the discovery that stitches I had struggled with when I first learned them, like #60 Diamond Stitch, no longer caused me trouble or frustration. I believe stitches need to 'sink in' before we can enjoy them fully. I am having great hopes for the future for my recent source of hardship, #117 Bullion Vandyke Stitch. Sink in, #117!
NEW! NEW! NEW!
Swedish Wool Embroidery - the Collar
Last summer, while in Sweden, I made two wrist warmers in wool embroidery, using Swedish design.
You might remember I showed this 'teaser' picture some time ago, and now it is time to turn it into a loose collar to go with the wrist warmers.
The first flower is in the working:
Whatever you are working on, enjoy it!
