Summary 6: TAST 51-60

I started following TAST again from Stitch 58. At the same time I started catching up on the missing stitches. Here are some of them.

60. Inverted Feather Stitch

A lacy border, just what I needed right now but unfortunately it didn’t work on the curvy lines on my flowers. I tried a few flowers nevertheless.

In this version I coached down the outer tip of every stitch.

Here are my first attempts.

59. Woven Detatched Chain Stitch

This is a nice little stitch that makes nice small petals on my Paradise Flowers as long as the tension is right.

58. Slipped Detatched Chain Stitch

I have not been working on my TAST-cloth for almost a year now but now I am back. (I will catch up all missing stitches and date the blogposts so that they will come in the right order.)

This week’s stitch is Slipped Detached Chain Stitch, aka Tulip stitch. It is a nice little stitch, easy to sew and easy to fit in amongst my Paradise Flowers from Dala-Floda. This picture will remind you of my training cloth:

Here are some of my Slipped Detached Chain Stitches. First I started two new flowers.

Then I tried a couple of Slipped Detached Fly Stitches.

57: Feathered Chain Stitch

I didn’t manage to make nice Feathered Chain Stitches on my flower print. I leave them for another project. Here they are anyway:

56. Lock Stitch

I made my first Lock Stitch between two narrow lines. The distance between them is only around 2 millimetres. This stitch looks better on a straight or slightly bowed line. They look very similar to Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch as you can see in the red centre of the flower.

Here is a picture anyway.

55. Upp and Down Buttonhole Stitch

What a useful stitch. It is almost new to me but I will certainly use it a lot.

When I first tried Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch I did’t realise its potential and made only a few stitches.

54. Knotted Buttonhole band

This is a difficult stitch for flowers. I made many attempts and this one was the best I managed to do. The lines are too curvy, the thread is too thin and the motif is too small. I leave this stitch for another project.

You can always improve an embroideri with a few French Knots, the salt of embroidery.

Sheaf Stitch was not easy to fit in among the flowers. Here is my attempt.
