You’re a very bad influence Sharon B., LOL. I’ve updated my blog with week 39 of TAST. Should be sewing for clients, but you have to be in the mood, don’t you. Enjoyed stitching, will try to keep going now I’m back in the groove.

I posted my reversed buttonhole bar, rice stitch, and boss stitch samples on my blog tonight. I’ve also been busily catching up on TAST, I am now up to date for the second half of the year! (I’m still missing 7 samples from the first half of the year and I have 4 samples from the first half of the year that I stitched but never posted.) My goal is to be completely caught up by the time Developing a Personal Library of Stitches starts. I’m really enjoying catching up. I think that for me, picking colors and starting a TAST sampler is a limitation that is making this more fun. Funny how that works sometimes!
I’m stitching along but I don’t have a blog or a digital camera to photograph my work. There are only two stitches I haven’t completed: knotted cretan and shisha. I hope to get to both of them before the end of the year.
I’m still participating… albeit very non-visibly at the moment. I’m finishing up several projects, and will get back to the crazy quilt photo frame wedding gift that is going to use only TAST stitches when I’m caught up.

I’m still stitching and enjoying it very much. I started a bit later, in the end of March, but made all the stitches from the start. I try to find a right place for every stitch on some bag or hat. I didn’t even know how many possibilities there is to use embroidery as embellishment on these everyday things! So thank You again, and I’ll definitely follow Your challenge till the end of the year!
Here are the last three week’s stitches, and a little overview of the objects made earlier: http://www.isetegija.net/index.php?ind=blog&op=home&idu=2796&singlepost=19876
I am still participating in tast, although I don’t have much time these days. I also liked your idea about collecting links to tutorials, so I wrote a small one. It is about using corn cop leaves for embroidery. Also, my leaf has reversed buttonhole bar on it. I guess I’m guilty of writing quick makeshift tutorials in the past, but they were meant to show my own progress, not for teaching, because I’m not qualified for that at all. But this time I really tried to put some effort in it. it is here: http://tenar72.wordpress.com/2007/09/30/mini-tutorial-preparing-corn-cop-leaves-for-embroidery/
I’m still hanging in there Sharon! Learning so much. Anything with buttonhole is fun …. and the reversed buttonhole bar was most enjoyable. I think I will be using this one more than some of the others we’ve done. You can see my sample here: http://normasneedlez.blogspot.com
Hi Sharon I’m back home and I have posted the Reversed Buttonhole Stitch sample on my blog today.I managed to get it done on the last day of my holidays–as it was raining.
