TAST Week 5 Highlights

My morning routine to approve comments and visit the sites over a quiet coffee has been a little disrupted as I was in Sydney last week. That said as soon as I was back to wanted to see what everyone had done.

If you have not taken the time to browse the links left by people doing the challenge do make time to do so as you otherwise you are missing out.

Once again there are some fantastic samples stitched this week and once again I have had trouble keeping the highlights to 5.

My first highlight is a bit different this week as I want to point people towards the Tuesdays Stitchers blog who area  group that are working the TAST and / or the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2012 challenge. 

The first sample is from Can the Leopard Change its Spots a freeform sampler which worked in different threads.

Highlights this week for me include a sample which is a variety of Kiku herringbone shared on Japanese Temari

I really enjoyed looking at the samples worked over on Fat Quarter

A very contemporary sample has been worked over on Art the Beautiful Metaphor

Hopscotch has worked a freeform ring of herringbone

Anneliese has also worked in rings on a painted background

This delightfully fresh sample worked on gingham is to be found over on Sane and Crazy quilting

Also over on Konnykards – Musings of a Senior Citizen there is an interesting series of small samplers 

I also delighted in this representation of a village from Anna Kousi 

That’s it for the highlights this week. I hope you enjoyed them. Tomorrow there is a new stitch.

  1. I had to write and say thank you. I have been researching samplers you suggested. Where as all are fabulous, crazy Annie's is more my style. Maybe because I am know as crazy Nana I don't know. Lol. I am bedridden and looking forward with much glee to get started, late I know but I just found you this past week. Geez. Lol. I am not sure if I am going to use denim squares that are already cut or Aida cloth. I am at mercy of hubby or grown son to get items for me. Could be interesting. Lol. Well until I can start stitching, I will wk on a cross stitch I have. It is a small Old Fashion Santa, but hard to see with my cataracts, and issues but we must forge ahead. I look fwd to be able to share with you. Don't know about pics, even if I want to do that, may be gruesome. But will try to write. Thank you again. I was wondering do you know how helpful and kind you are to share all this with us. I am very grateful for you. I hope you are blessed beyond measure. Thanks again,
