With only 5 days left in this series it is timely to remind everyone about the challenge next year. “Take a Stitch Tuesdays” will be a weekly challenge which encourages people to take a stitch and push it in various ways.
Exploration and interpretation of stitches and how they might be used is the aim of this challenge. Each week I am going to feature a stitch, experiment with it. Anyone who wants to join in can do the same, interpreting the stitch as they choose. People can stitch on anything they choose, anyway they choose and commitment is flexible. Anyone can join at any time. People can join in and stitch as their life dictates.
Each week I will link to who has done what. In other words, as I have done in this series a list of links to current activity will be in the post of the week, which means readers can travel the sites to see what everyone has done.
The start date is January 2nd 2007. Drop me an email or leave a comment if you want to go on a list of people who want a reminder about it closer to the time.
As you can see there are two seams featured today. Both seams are made up of of arrangements of detached chain stitches and straight stitch.
One grouping worked in thread the same weight as DMC pearl 8 is along side lace. The other worked in thread the same weight as DMC pearl 5 is worked along side a fine cord which has been couched down
Both seam treatments are quick simple and effective.
