TAST - take a stitch Tuesday

Sharon Boggon of has started a new TAST challenge.  Every week a new stitch is discussed with how to do it, and examples of it used in embroidery/crazy quilting.  See the TAST badge at the right and click on it to go to the pintangle web page for more info.

I discovered Pintangle last year, but by then the previous TAST was finished.  The instructions were still on the website and I found them very helpful in learning new stitches.

I'm happy to be taking part in the TAST.  Where possible I'll use the stitches on CQ blocks. 

The first stitch is the very versatile fly stitch.  Here I have done it as snowflakes and leaves on a winter themed CQ block.

  1. Your fly stitch snowflakes turned out great!

    I host a weekly Stitchery Link Party for all things hand embroidered and I would love to have you come link up this post (or one of your other ones.)

    I do hope that you'll come join in the fun!
