TAST Week 21 Highlights

hand embroidered butterfly stitch sampleThis week the challenge was of course butterfly chain stitch. People really enjoyed it and for many it was new to them.

Once again I had trouble choosing what samples to feature so dont let these few samples lead you to think that these are the only worthwhile samples to be seen. Follow some of the links in the comments, on week 21 and I promise you there is more eye candy to be seen.

First up Lin of Lin’s Arty Blobs took the unusual tack of replacing one of the straight stitches with a bead. Its a great idea so dont miss the rest of her post about it.

Once again the man with two z’z in his name Luiz Vaz has caught out attention with his interpretation. ( You can tell I live in fear of Anglicising Luiz’s name by mistake)

Also this kite over on Home Made By Me looked light hearted and fun.

Hope you have enjoyed the featured samples this week.
