I thought I would give people an easy stitch this week as the last few have been good experimental stitches. This week stitch 92 is Closed Herringbone stitch which is very useful to define a good strong line or in a border or as part of an edging. You can experiment by changing the height of the stitches to use it a fill for small shapes. Also this stitch looks wonderful in fine braid – it produces a good border or outline.
As Usual you can find a tutorial for Closed Herringbone stitch in my Stitch Dictionary.
Join in on the challenge and share what you do with Stitch 92
The challenge guidelines are on the TAST FAQ page. The idea is to stitch a sample, photograph it, put it online on your blog, flickr site, share it on Facebook or where ever you hang out online, and leave a comment on the Closed Herringbone stitch page with your full web address so that people can visit your site and see what you have done.
Feel free to join the TAST facebook group and leave your photo there. For Flickr people the group is Take a Stitch Tuesday. Hashtags are #TASTembroidery and #PintangleTAST on places like Instagram etc. Go for it – share and see what others have done too.
