TAST - CHEVRON STITCH


Here is my sample for TAST this week. I have to admit that I was

not looking forward to this one as I didn't think I could do enough variation of it, and i took someone else on TAST's lead and did some drawing first. I used sequin waste again and couched down with different sizes of the stitch. I also liked the circle to do, although it was a bit of a fiddle. I really like the windy band to the right too. It was much nicer to work than I thought. I do love this challenge, it is allowing me to test out lots of things but on a nice small scale. I would like to do what some of the others are doing and do al the stitches on one piece and build it up each week. If I get my act together i will let you know!

Love your chevron piece. I couldn't get inspired by this stitch, although I've used in in CQ in the past. Great example :)

Carol - your not looking forward to this one approach to the chevron stitch is stunning! I think a collage of all the stitches would be great - I've got it on my list as well... when I get my act together!

Oh, this is even more exciting than your Cretan sampler! I love your monochrome color scheme, as well as the use of sequins and sequin waste with these stitches. Beautiful composition.

Nice, Carol. It's funny, you are thinking of doing all your samples on one piece and building it up - I'm wondering if I should do a separate sample each week to showcase each stitch. I think if mine were as good as yours, I would!
