Stitches 84 to 88
|TAST Stitches 84 to 88|
Four samples for TAST this week with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle.
It has been a while since I did any embroidery samples. I love learning new stitches and seeing what can be done with them.
Sharon has been presenting a new stitch challenge every week at Take a Stitch Tuesday.
She is presently taking a breather but has promised to returned if there is enough interest.
There are now 140 stitches to choose from, so I still have over 50 to catch up.
After practicing the stitch around a 4” frame, I try to come with a design using that stitch.
Stitch 84 – Spiked Knotted Cable Chain
This stitch is easy once you get into the swing of it. The stitches in the border are the actual stitch. I think adding the french knots to the paisley shape makes it more interesting.

Stitch 85– Raised Cup
I really like this stitch. Who would have thought you started with a triangle. I made the border by wrapping in the same way on straight stitches. I like the lumpy bumpy looks of it.
Stitch 86 – Turkman Stitch
This stitch is nice whether in a straight or circular line.
Stitch 87 – Buttonhole Picot (Version 1) made with Bullion Knot
Stitch 88 – Buttonhole Picot (Version 2) made with Chain
I found these stitches difficult to make, especially version one. It will definitely be version two if I make this again.
