I enjoy couching alot. There are so many different couching stitches. This one can be done with so many different type threads! It's a neat look.
I couldn't get enough of this one!
Another really neat stitch and very easy to do. I worked it with several different threads including nylon ribbon.
OK...I think this is actually on the original TAST list but it is a great stitch! I love it! I learned through TAST that I really like the knotted stitches. And pretty much don't like the chain stitches.
This is just one example of canvas stitching. I like working on canvas and need to explore the possibilities further.
Probably my favorite from all the stitches I did. I've always wanted to do cutwork but never thought I was good enough. So where better to practice than by TAST?! This sample is wonderful....it shows what NOT to do as well as what to do. The count is very important. The correct fabric is very important too (I learned the hard way on this example!). I have wonderful books that are very good with cutwork explanations and I think that I really can do it!!
Another fun stitch. I think this one works best with yarns. This is a great one for flowers!
Well, there's a walk through of a few of my stitches that were not. I hope you enjoy them. My hubby came up with a great idea for a book for my TAST samples. I have one now but I don't like anything about it except that they are all together. So that's another project for fall and winter.
