TAST 2012 WEEK 32 CAST ON STITCH !

Hello everyone, The sun is shining here today....and it is most pleasant ! That time of the week again, where I show you what I have created ! The stitch is Cast-on stitch, it is called this because its like casting on in knitting, except you do it with needle and thread.......A very pretty stitch ! Well I water coloured my fabric,
mounted into a hoop and this is what I ended up with......................


Its not perfect I know, I love the stitch and the colours !!!
I used Perle 8,Coton a broder 25 and DMC threads together with seed beads and Crystal beads.
Thank you all for visiting my little creative haven.........I do so love it here, have a happy week xxxxxxxxxxx

  2. I just have to say that I have been following your blog for a while and it's a favorite. Your work is so very very beautiful...yes, it makes me feel good, too. I am just beginning a class with Sharon and am learning embroidery for the first time. You are inspirational!

  3. That looks lovely, it is very pretty! I particularily love the 3D effect of the cast on stitching, I've never seen that stitch before. I'll have to learn how to do it and have a go! I definately want to learn new stitches and include them in my cross stitch jewellery!

  4. Chris this is such beautiful work...love your water coloured background and what a great idea...This stitch I have heard of and you have done a fabulous job of creating a little scene with lots of texture....you always embellish your work beautifully with the use of beads...if this was an Olympic challenge I would award you GOLD....

  7. Every week you surprise me with your design ideas and creativity, but I am never surprised at the quality of your work. The Cast-on stitch is really excellent for depicting flowers as you have proven. I love the colours.
