TAST week 14 Highlights

satin stitch sample Once again it’s Monday morning and time for a round up of the TAST (Take a stitch Tuesday) highlights. It’s been a very busy weekend with both Father and Daughter performing. I spent most of my time at the national Folk Festival but I did manage to take some quiet time and browse the Satin stitch samples worked  this week.

Every  week choosing what to feature is hard.  To be honest I thought it would be easy to keep the features this week, to 5 (I try to feature 5 but fail hopelessly).  Do make sure you visit the comments section on week 14 and take a look at the links people have left. If you visit the sites you will see why I ran over the number!

This made me really smile Over on Urist McDorf a very interesting journal project has started and this “April Fool” has “awesome thunder thighs” worked in Satin Stitch. Visit the site as stitches from weeks 2-14 are represented.
