I have done alot of cross stitch but not alot of embroidery work so I found a challenge at Pin Tangle to learn and try a new embroidery stitch every Tuesday. The challenge is called Take a Stitch Tuesday or TAST. There are 100's of others joining in and there is a TAST Flickr site with photos. Check out the beautiful needlework on these links. Remember I am a beginner so my stitches are not so breath taking! So here we go!
My first Fly Stitch
I am left handed so I always have to think through directions. This was easy for me though. I can tell that it will take time to have a comfort level with a stitch... especially to get it consistent... but I am not unhappy with my first try at it.
I also tried another stitch that was referenced in Sharon B's Stitch Dictionary the Oyster Stitch.
This took me awhile to get but again I am happy with my three little oyster stitches! It is alot of fun and takes me back to my childhood. My Grandma used to make embroidered pillow cases. Wish I would have kept one of them! Happy creating to you!
