As always when I sit down with my cuppa and browse the blogs and photos of people who are participating in Take a Stitch Tuesday I am always delighted, surprised and intrigued with what people do with the stitch.
This week was no different and many people reported that they enjoyed Palestrina stitch as they had not tried it before. Once again I took far too long trying to decided what samples to feature. If these wet your appetite follow some of the links in the comments, on week 26 as there is many more interesting explorations of this stitch to be seen.
I loved how this stitch was applied to a Peace banner over on Playful Stitching (follow the link for a larger view).
Over on Ella’s Craft Creations Chris Richards had a lot of fun with this stitch (many more views of this piece can be seen if you visit her blog).
Using this stitch alongside shisha work to attach a spoon to a piece was certainly an interesting innovation by Liz Eph (more views of this are in her stitchin fingers photos).
Queeniepatch over on Queenie’s Needlework worked this lovely motif (scoot over there and see close ups if you click on her images).
Finally I loved these sea horses by Luiz Vaz on Embroiderland (once again there is more on his blog so do pop over)
Hope you have enjoyed the featured samples this week.
