TAST week 11 Highlights

sample of whipped woven wheelTAST 2012 is certainly going to be a challenge to remember as every week when I visit all the photos I am constantly amazed at the inventiveness of some people. I know people who write blogs use terms like that but it’s true. I am serious when I say I think this challenge is shaping up to be one to remember.

There is some great eye candy being produced each week. Now time for a round up of the TAST (Take a stitch Tuesday) highlights. So make a cuppa and I will get on with it and share with you some of the samples that caught my eye last week.

Annet over on Fat Quater has written a tutorial on how to work a version of this stitch that combines whipped and woven wheels.

I want to draw attention to Luiz Vaz’s work. This week again Luiz has produced a wonderful piece – but also go and visit his photos as every single piece is an example of using a stitch in an original and inventive manner.

There are lots more ideas in the links this week do visit them and if you have time make comments when you visit as people appreciate it. People go to the trouble of putting their stitching online to share let them know you appreciate it.

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.
All posts relating to TAST are in the Challenges –  Take a Stitch Tuesday category
