Once again its Monday morning and time for a round up of the TAST (Take a stitch Tuesday) highlights. So make a cuppa and I will share with you some of the samples that caught my eye last week.
Every week it is always hard to choose so do make sure you visit the comments section on week 10 and take a look at the links people have left. If you dont you are missing out!
The versatility of this simple stitch always amazes me but this zebra worked by Annet of Fat Qurater I thought was exceptional.
Masha shared some Russian pattern darning
I really enjoyed the freeform approach Jizee took. Take a look at the rest of her samplers on Jizee6687’s weblog.
There is another freeform approach over on Lin’s Arty Blobs
Over on Silk and Stitch and Digital Design there is freeform sample that employs a variety of threads.
Luiz Vaz once again, came up with wonderful imagery, this time of a fountain!
Over on Claudias blog there is a landscape worked in running stitch.
Over on Harvest Moon Ann spent time researching running stitch and did a few samples. She recorded it all in her studio journal and shared it with us.
I can not describe the joy I felt when I saw this piece Oma Rose worked a tribute to Irene Copping a woman we both know and were influenced by. When Oma was young she had her as a sewing teacher. Years later, I worked with Irene Copping when I ran the young stitchers group at our local guild. When I saw this tribute it literally bought tears to my eyes!
Other groups and networks
There is a Facebook TAST 2012 page, stitchin fingers group and the flickr TAST site. All these sub groups are set up at request of members.
Although I do watch these groups my main focus is here and if you want to contact me do so here as with so much activity I might miss you on the other sites.
