Tast and SC4,5

Hand printed leaves on fabric, chiffon layers, embroidery and beads.
The stitches on the left include variations of beaded buttonhole stitch (tast 118), beaded feathered chain stitch (tast 113), beaded fly stitch, running stitch.....the one that looks like a caterpillar is beaded vandyke stitch (tast 116). 
On the right is beaded fly stitch and feather stitch to which I applied the beads afterwards.
If you want to learn to embroider or learn some new stitches join in the tast challenge. 

Below are two quick drawings for the 30 day drawing spoonchallenge
prompt 4 - river
prompt 5 - lemon [incorporating hand lettering]


  1. I love the way you incorporated the TAST stitches with your printed leaves so they flow with the nature theme!

  2. You have successfully turned a lot of TAST stitches into insects. I love your embroidery, and the lemon is cool, too.

  3. I love how you use the layers of chiffon,something I want to try one day.
