Take a stitch Tuesday has arrived quickly! This week the challenge is learn or experiment with Feather stitch. For those who are new to embroidery you will find aspects of the hand movements you need to make this stitch are similar to those learnt in Fly stitch and Buttonhole. I hope readers following this series can see there is a method to my madness in introducing these stitches in this way as each builds a little on the skill gained while learning the previous stitch. In fact the first 15 weeks or so of TAST is a effectively an embroidery course suitable for beginners to take.
How to join in on the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge
If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn the stitch. If you are an experienced push Feather stitch in creative manner and share with beginners what can be done with a little imagination.

Stitch a sample, photograph it, put in online on your blog, flickr site, share it on facebook or where ever you hang out online, and leave a comment on the Feather stitch page with your full web address include the http bit of the web address so that it becomes a live link.
