TAST 2010
18 Wave Stitch

Well, my version!
I didn't read the instructions
before I set up lots of
straight stitches - so I have woven the top stitches instead of making feet and threading the yarn.
I should know by now that I MUST read instructions!!!! Maybe I'll do the stitch properly next time.
This is a corner of a CQPC started some time ago.


  1. I was looking at your version and wondering why the stitches looked different to mine. I do beleive your stitch is actually called Cloud Filling Stitch also knowwn as Mexico Stitch. It does look very pretty though with all the extra bits. I'm also bad at reading instructions and I know a few of the stitches I have done have not been quite right.

  2. Thanks for your comments Connie. I checked out your cloud filling trees, they're lovely. By the way my book says the foundation stitches are vertical rather than horizontal, but I have noticed little variations with other stitches that we have done before. And so many names for the same stitch! There is also another similar stitch to wave/cloud called fancy stitch which has a foundation row of horizontal stitches and on the next row the stitches are vertical. Happy stitching.

  3. i love the way that your wave stitch turned out~!!~ you may not have followed the instructions but your results are gorgeous~!!~
    you're always inspiring me Connie. thank you.


  4. Love both you examples of wave stitch. I had to go back to the printouts to work out the difference...did not realise the difference before. Anyway whatever way you did it your interpretations were simply inspiring as usual.
