TAST, WEEK 15, Stem stitch
TAST stitch last week was the stem stitch. This is a
very familiar one to me. This stem stitch here is going to be part of something else on my April CQJP. This was done using DMC Pearl cotton #8.
This sample was done using Kreinik Very Fine Braid, which I have just started using for the first time.
Nothing too imaginative last week. I have been taking some on-like classes as I have mentioned before. Nancy Eha's Seed Beed Botany Class through Maureen's Vintage Acquisitions ended last week, but there is a new one starting May 22nd.
This week is the last week for Betty Pillsbury's Peacock in Paisley, also through Maureen's Vintage Acquisitions.
I have also signed up for Dyeing to be Beautiful- 3 Lessons by Christen Brown which starts in June. I done some dyeing myself, but would like to learn more.
I really am looking forward to Sharon B's Sumptuous Surface Embroidery Class in May which is apparently closed. I have been busy collecting my threads for that.
Today and tomorrow are my days off, and I need to get busy on my Peacock in Paisley, my CQJP and the
TAST stitch of this week, French Knots.
