maybe i should have expanded the exercise a bit more but i’m so pleased to be early for the first time in ages that i couldn’t resist. my week’s sample is up at http://amovablefeast.blogspot.com
now with all that extra time i should make some bread…
I finally decided that not taking part in TAST was counter productive to getting more stitchery done, so I’m back. My sample this week isn’t pretty so far, but I’m finding it more interesting than some of the prettier things I’ve stitched.
I can see that the blanket v. buttonhole stitch debate is a bit arcane and largely dependant on geography and ones own tradition. I just can’t see using this stitch on a buttonhole but I can imagine using it to edge a blanket so for what its worth I am calling it crossed blanket stitch.
I have used the stitch on veiling net which, because you see both sides of the stitch, gives a scribbled effect.
this tast challenge went up this week, sometime, sunday I think, its on my blog http://backvalleyseasons.blogspot.com
I am home from holiday and after nearly 10 hours on the road yesterday and getting back to some semblence of order today.
