Tast - and stitch book




Here is my new TAST sample! I really liked doing this one and tried to push it a bit harder than the last. I had a great time doing circles and beading. Below the sample is the lovely book that Eve gave me that I am making into a stitch sample book with my TAST samples, for use in school. The next image is how I have presented the pages. Hopefully when complete this will be of major benifit to my kids, but also be fun on the way. I love the meeting of people this challenge has caused! Well done Sharon B.

Your buttonhole piece is great and what a lovely way to keep a record of all the stitches.

LOVE your buttonhole stitch sample. Great use of thread thicknesses and I think this is the only sample I've seen it worked on the 3D bar - I'd forgotten you could do this!! Love the book format you're using to store the samples too :)

What a lovely stitchbook! I am late with my stitchtast. First I started so quickly with the herringbone and buttonhole, but when I loose my energy. But I am looking on others stitch :-))
