TAST 2010 - 31 & 32
31 Raised Close Herringbone Stitch
32 Shell Chain Stitch
A patchwork block stitch sampler.
As my arm continues to be painful I can only stitch in short spells so this has taken several days.
I enjoy setting up a small patchwork block, choosing threads - these are Perle 5 & 8 - and letting a design develop.
The fabrics are a scrim base with cotton and hessian patches.
I'm catching up on TAST now, just a couple to get to this week's stitch.
