TAST....Herringbone Stitch


(Click on image to enlarge.)
TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday). Week One.
Herringbone Stitch.
Last year stitchers all over the world created thousands of fantastic works as part of the TAST challenge. Emmy is creating a one-of-a-kind book that will be part of CYBER FYBER next January. I, however, am making a notebook...a functional (as opposed to "beautiful"!) working tool to which I might refer later. So, here's week one: Herringbone Stitch, counted above how I'd probably use it below.

I have often thought of doing a 'book' of stitches that I could refer back to for various works. I like that you have the traditional stitch and the innovative version as well! Great idea.

Susan, your right we are crossing paths today! I might just join in on the TAST.

Such a GREAT idea! I have been looking for a book like that for a long time. Once you can actually touch and examine. It is so difficult to learn stitches from instructional sheets. But, I seem to beable to work it out...with several emails to you!
