TAST 5

It is Tuesday again!! My result of the Take A Tuesday Stitch of week 5 is ready to be shown here. Last week the name of the stitch was Herringbone stitch. Looks like crosses and I cannot recall I did this stitch ever before, But it was fun again.

I used a self made wetfelted cuff in reds and added  the stitch with2 different 3 ply-embroidery thread to it.  the only mistake I made was in the name.. I thought it was herrington, hihihi changed the “ T” in a “B” and added an “E” and voila it was herringbone again :)

WIP

Another Work In Progress of my felted cuffs with the embroidery stitch called Herringbone stitch of the TAST project. As I decided to make a sampler cuff from every stitch. The cuff- bracelet is my testpiece  for the stitch. I didn’t tried this stitch out on some woven fabric, but I started straight away on  the felt. I wanted to stitch evenly, using the colors as a guideline.  ( I think you cannot tell anymore, but there were 4 `lines` of different reds) That’s why my stitches ain’t even along both sides…

So here a sneak preview of my not  jet finished cuff

Threads

I am really enjoying the TAST project lately (must be obvious for you, isn’t it?) And when I was driving home last week I decided to visit a shop I discoveredsome years ago. They produce their own threads, for embroidery, weaving, knitting etc. And are shipping this worldwide  from that small village here in Limburg. They are called Venne-Colcoton

This is the fantasy threads they have. But it is not standard in their collection I think every time I come there the color combinations are differently… and this time I couldn’t resist these 3. And lucky for me my mind let me down. These 3 weren’t in my collection jet.
