Take a Stitch Tuesday 2023 Week 2 Beyond TAST
For Beyond TAST this week I am going to suggest people explore Back Stitch Trellis. This filling stitch is a great because it works up easily and quickly. It looks great is you use a hand dyed variegated thread. The changes of colour create very interesting effects. This stitch is also an example of how a linear stitch can be used as a filling stitch. You simply arrange it in a grid!
Where to share your Take a Stitch Tuesday 2023 Week 2 samples
If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn the stitch and share what you have learned. If you are an experienced embroiderer, enjoy Beyond TAST and give your work a modern twist. And of course, share it online so beginners can see what can be done with a little imagination.
If you are doing the design challenge you have a month to work a design and stitch it up.
So the idea is to stitch a sample, photograph it, share it in the Take a Stitch Tuesday facebook group or use the hashtags are #TASTembroidery and #PintangleTAST on Instagram.
