Stitch 105: Buttonhole Picot Stitch

During week 17 of TAST 2019 I saw Buttonhole Picot Stitch, for the first time

image

There are two ways to do the picot. Here is a Bullion Knot in combination with Blanket Stitch.

Here is another one. I tried to hide the black lines with a thread.

Here is the second method, three Chain stitches ”in the air” in combination with Buttonhole Stitch.

Both variants are slow to sew and not easy to get nice and tidy. A lot of practice is needed to master them.

104. Spanish Feather Stitch

Spanish Feather Stitch is the third stitch new to me from TAST 2109, week 15.
This is a nice looking stitch but not easy to learn. I needed an instruction from YouTube to get hold of it. I also had trouble with the curvy lines on my training cloth. Anyway, here are three attempts. More practice is nessesary.

It was easier to work with a light coloured thread. This is my second attempt.

My very first Spanish Feather Stitch. This colour made it difficult to see where to put the needle down.

My third and last attempt for now. In combination with Split Back Stitch.

103. Raised Close Herringbone Stitch

Raised Close Herringbone Stich was a surprise. Beautiful, fairly easy to learn and gives structure to the embroidery. This is the Stitch from Week 6, 2019.

My first attempt. Learning progress.

102. Italian Border Stitch

Now, as I have found my lost cloth I will catch up with stitches that are new to me from TAST 2019. The first one is Italian Border Stitch from the second week. A stitch very easy to learn if you know Fly stitch and French knots.

Fly Stitch was my very first TAST stitch. French knots, is one of my favorites and one of few stitches I knew before it started following TAST.

101. Rice Stitch

During week 15 of TAST 2018 I encountered Rice Stitch, a new stitch to me.

RiceStitch

I filled an area on my new doodle cloth. It is simply a Cross Stitch with another stitch over the ”legs” of the foundation stitch. You can cross the ”legs” in different ways which makes this stitch very versatile. You will find  some nice examples by googling the stitch.

100. Drizzle Stitch

Drizzle Stitch is the last stitch in this round of TAST. It has been great fun and I have learnt a lot. Thanks Sharon Boggon for this amazing journey. Next year TAST will start again. I will continued to follow but I won’t embroider every stitch again. And next year I will write my blog posts in Swedish unless I write about a new TAST Stitch.

97. Feather and Chain Stitch

Feather and Chain Stitch is not a stitch for ”Paradise Flowers”. So I used it as a bakgrund stitch. It is nice looking, gives a structure and is easy to embroider, a nice stitch for another project.
