Well I am sad to say that selling sets of CQ stencils and posting them out in time for the Christmas holiday means I have not done any stitching. Once again I dont have any Work in Progress to write about.
I am opening up this post for those who use the weekly deadline to push them towards completing a project.
Do people still want me to do this over the holiday period? I have a pile of stitching related things that are gifts so, I can’t share them and I wonder if others are in the same situation? Or some people also like myself are just too busy. I know I am running like mad since I have returned from our holiday.
Let me know what people would like to do as its easy enough to open a place where people can leave a message about an on going project and it’s great to see people progressing. It’s no trouble for me to do it, but if few are going to be able to work on long term projects it looks a bit silly. Or we can stop and recommence in the new year – where at least I will able to stitch along too! So leave a comment and I will go with the majority.
If you have leave a comment with a link to your site including the http bit of your web address as then it will become a link and folks can visit and see what you have done.

As I explained last week, this week I have taken a break from the series in order to get orders for my CQ Stencils out.
I am opening up this page so that if you have worked a sample from ANY of the stitches listed on the TAST FAQ page feel free to post a comment below and tell us about it.
Once you have worked a sample, photograph it and put it online at your blog, flickr etc then swing back to the Last TAST post (you will find it under the category each week) and leave a comment.
Don’t want to miss our on any of the TAST stitches?

This seam is on block 69 of the I dropped the button box Quilt. I covered it with a piece of hand dyed lace and cluster of buttons. As I said when I introduced block 69 , in this cluster of buttons there is an unusual vintage souvenir made from a pressed penny. Slouch hat pennies are an example of soldiers craft and the older ones are now collectors pieces.
What is the story?
This regular series illustrates the hand embroidered seams, embellishments and decorations on my crazy quilt I dropped the button box. All articles in this series can be found under Crazy Quilt details Links to each block is listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
Free Crazy quilt block patterns
In the process of documenting the seam decorations on this quilt, as I get to each block I am diagramming it out for readers as a free crazy quilt pattern. Links to these free pattern pages are listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
I have done a little tidy up on Pintangle as one thing I want to do is to provide better index pages. There are a lot of resources on this site but people cant find them!
I have a tutorial section which provides links to tutorials and reviews I have written over the years. I have not added the TAST stitches as they are already listed on the TAST FAQ page. Do people think I should list them under tutorials too?
I have also added another section of Free Embroidery Patterns. These are patterns I gave a way they are all together now and people can just browse back through those.
I hope this is useful for readers as I am aware that most people dont use the search box. Let me know as its silly creating these pages if no one uses the top tabs on the website!
