TAST 52

Take a stitch Tuesday - the stitch for week 52 is triangular feather stitch.
I did the dark purple row first and thought it didn't look quite right so I checked the instructions and I found I had done it slightly wrong. I didn't take it out as it is sewn on paper and would have left holes. I did another row in lilac with the work the other way round, then whipped the stitches in the middle and some single chain stitches on one side.
The stitching has been worked on hand painted, stamped papers. I used some of the old rolling stamps that I made.
I was at a friends house the other day and we loaded my blog up and it was very slow. I don't have a problem at home, in fact it is very quick to load, so I was wondering if anyone else is finding it slow?

  1. This is interesting. You have made the Trianglular Feather stitch, not simply mirrored but upside down on one side. What a lot of possibilities this stitch has.
    What broadband did you use at your friend's house? It might have been much weaker/slower than what you have at home.

    1. Thanks for your comments Queenie. The slowness on my website could be the broadband, but there didn't seem to be the same problems with other blogs/websites we looked at.

  2. Certainly very creative way to use this stitch and very neat that you did this on hand painted and stamped papers. Looks great in purples too.

    1. Thanks Jenny. If you want to try stitching on paper put some stabiliser, interfacing or fabric on the back so the stitches don't tear the paper.
