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.
Elizabeth Braun over on Sew in Love has featured a number of pieces she has used satin stitch in. This section of foliage caught my eye. Do pop over and visit as there area number of pieces she has highlighted.
I enjoyed this freeform satin stitch sample of a sunset by MariaInez L.ribeiro dos Santos.
Yarn Goddess on Sooner or Later has added satin stitch to her contemporary sampler. Visit her site to see the sampler in full.
Chrisitina has produced the opposite working Satin stitch on the diagonal with a fine line of the background fabric being left void to enhance the pattern.
These simple geometric flowers worked by Debbie on Jerusalem Notes delighted me
I really must stop now – enjoy browsing the sites and swing back tomorrow for Week 15!
