TAST Week 42 Highlights

I am really pleased I decided to add Italian Knotted Border stitch to TAST as many people enjoyed it. Here are the highlights but I want to say that as usual it was hard to decide!

  3. Thank you, Sharon, for including my Mandala in the highlights.
    This week it must have been especially difficult to pick just a few; there were SO many wonderful takes on the Italian Border stitch. I guess that proves how enjoyable this easy yet flexible stitch is. I am so grateful you introduced it to us all.

    What amazing stitching- I absolutely love the owl, especially as my 9 year old is obsessed with them and we have books, pictures, toys etc littered about the place, plus a picture of the cute scops owl we have adopted at the local sanctuary – maybe I should try and add an embroidered one to the growing menagerie!! Inspiring as always, thank you x
