WIPW - Reference Charts

I am doing catch up for Work In Progress Wednesday.

If you have not yet taken part in TAST, the online stitch course run by Sharon Boggon of Pintangle, I highly recommend it. A re-run will start in the new year.

In 2014 I made a TAST Reference Chart to have an easy-to-see chart from where I could pick suitable stitches for my various projects.

I filled in the various stitches up to #144, where I took a break.

Finally I have begun to do a number of the shelved stitches. Yesterday I posted about TAST 145, Whipped Chain Stitch version 1, and here it is on the Ref chart:
The second chart is now completely filled in, and I have labeled the third chart with numbers and names.

There are nine shelved stitches to fill in.


When I started the Sunday Stitch School, one of the promises to myself was to make a similar chart for those stitches, as stated on this first Lesson.

I have been too lazy to even prepare the grid chart, let alone, to fill it in. Last night I made the grid.
So now begins the hard work of filling in the 36 stitches I have posted so far:
 starting with # 1 Anundsjö Stitch

THIS will be my Work In Progress Wednesday project for some time.

It will be so useful to have when you've done it, though!

Your reference charts are great! Maybe I'll start again in the new year.

Yes, I refer to these charts all the time and it is well worth the effort to collect the stitches in such a way. Many make beautiful stitch collections in fabric books, but I find this the best 'work horse'.

After I have added all the missing stitches I want to put them to use in new projects. Beyond TAST is very tempting!

Yes, it is the best collection (for me) of stitches I have learned. Then I have all these undone stitches in books to add in the future. I bet there will be a whole series of charts before I am put in the grave, ha, ha! So much to learn!
