TAST 77 and 78


Take a Stitch Tuesday - week 78, Cloud filling stitch.
My version consists of cloud stitch over cloud stitch in different coloured threads and I've used it as a couching stitch to hold the dyed laces and pink gingham in place. For neatness the stitch is best worked on an evenweave fabric, hence mine is not so neat. If you want to see details about the challenge go here and maybe try it out, it is an easy stitch to do. The background fabric is actually pink, and vintage, it is thin but I think it always was and it has not gone like that with age.

I also did this stitch for TAST 2010, see here

TAST 77 - I have an old sample for woven cross stitch here

If you don't like spiders look away now, I saw both of these beauties today. Click on the pictures if you want a closer look.
