Take a Stitch Tuesday Week 36

Last week I asked if people needed a catchup week. The votes to take a week off, outweighed those against so it is officially a catch up week. Take advantage of it as it will in all probability be the last before the run up to the end of the year.

For those who are going through withdrawal symptoms I have a mini challenge.

The mini challenge for stitchers who cant stop……

Take 3 – 6 of the stitches we have have done so far and create an interesting visual piece that will encourage  new hands or busy hands to learn and to “catch up”. In other words create some eye candy for those who are falling behind, either because of busy lives or because they are new hands.

When done catching up leave a comment

For those both catching up and those taking the mini challenge swing by here and leave a link in the comments so people can visit your site.

Further information

    My catch-up project – Love You To The Moon And Back – with a whole bunch of stitches worked into it: oyster stitch, sheaf stitch, linked double chain, buttonhole wheels, cable chain, cast on stitch, and more.

    I have not completely caught up, still 4 stitches to go, but it’s looking more manageable. I’ve blogged about where I’m at complete with photos of WIP, etc. here:

    I love the work I see everyone doing. So inspiring, truly!

    I did a combination of 4 stitches for my sampler. I also put together 3 short videos of what my TAST embroidery journal looks like up to this point. Here’s the link:

    Hi Sharon and all,
    I really liked repeating and playing around with Buttonhole-, Algerian eye-, Cretan-, Pekinese-, Palestrina- and French knot stitch:
    I will make a cover for a needle book for my Mum from this sampler.
    Cheers Claudia

    I’m so far behind! But I’m picking and choosing and finding so much inspiration with creative designs by Sharon and the participants of TAST and so much information for me to learn.
    Here is my effort for Week 32 – cast on stitch – on a Japanese temari . I love this one.

    using French knots, fly stitch, feather stitch, running stitch, satin stitch and backstitch (the latter of which we have not used so far): a cat sleeping on a pillow atop a wall in a garden… as shown here: http://210920746822434353.weebly.com/1/post/2012/09/take-a-stitch-tuesday-autumn-break-week-thirty-six.html

    Thanks so much for the breather, I did 7 stitches to catch up this week. Things are finally getting back to normal at my house after all the surgeries etc! It feels so good to be caught up and have a few days that, if I find time to stitch I can play a bit more with each of the stitches. I am off now to make more crazy quilt blocks to add my next stitches too!

    I do have a question for you. I am having a bit of trouble stitching some of the stitches through my crazy quilt seams. I make them over a foundation of muslin. Often there are at least 3 layers to stitch through. Any ideas on how you make it easier? I do use a thimble when needed and sharp embroidery needles. I would love to use thicker thread but I can barely get regular floss through!

    I missed weeks 33 and 34 but have caught up now. Thanks for the breather! It helped.
