Welcome Back TAST Stitch 51

Welcome back everyone I hope everyone enjoyed the break and had fun holidaying or stitching or both! I hope everyone caught up, if they needed to practiced or worked on other projects. I not only had a trip across Australia and am currently in Singapore but I also re-launched In a Minute Ago as a site on contemporary journals and journaling techniques to have fun with. So if you are interested in that topic you may wish to visit it and subscribe as I will be sharing my travel journal over there.

Buttonholed Herringbone 6
This week the challenge stitch is called Buttonholed Herringbone. It is fun and surprisingly useful as it makes a border that is highly textured like a braid. It is literally herringbone stitch that has been buttonholed so check out the tutorial for Buttonholed Herringbone and have some fun with it.  If you work two rows facing each other you have a line of circles and if you work two rows back to back they become diamonds.

    Good to see you back – travels look wonderful. While you’ve been away I’ve been trawling through your site and have found lots of inspiration. I’ve been experimenting with the ideas you shared in your course sumptuous surfaces. So sorry you’re not still running that – any plans to do it again? As I’ve been using you for inspiration I’ve credited you on my blog. Hope that’s OK. I included several links to your site.
