This is TAST Break Week 1. Last week, I mentioned that we would have a catch-up week. If you are up to date with your homework, take a little break. I don’t know a stitcher who has not got other projects to work on – so this is your chance
For those of you who are in catch-up mode, this week gives you a little time. Catch-up weeks are important. It is really easy to fall a bit behind as we all have busy lives. What I hope to prevent is people slipping behind, then getting discouraged, as the main aim of TAST and the reason I run it, is that I love embroidery and I love to introduce people to embroidery, so I want to see everyone succeed. And here at Pintangle, I also have a chance to take a breath, and work on my own UFOs (unfinished objects) — so you see, we’re all in the same boat really. That said on Thursday I will still be here with the next tumbling block in the Diamonds are Forever quilt. TAST will be back here next week with another stitch and I’m so looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.
In the meanwhile enjoy some eye candy from me. You can read about it here
