Good morning all you lovely people! The sun is shining here in the uk and I am on the ball this week with my TAST challenge........Knotted cretan is the stitch this week and I did struggle a little. I dont even know if I have done it right.....but alas, I am happy with the end product, which I hasten to add, I've done in double quick time this week !!!!! If I have done this stitch wrong then please forgive me........This is one stitch that I have difficulty getting my head around !!!!!  This is it .............................................
Thank you all so much for visiting my little corner of creativity, it means so much to me xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

TAST WEEK 20..... Bullion stitch

Hello everyone, So sorry this is late, but I have been away for a few days, visiting my son in Brighton......what a place ! Such amazing things going on there.......there was a mini car rally, while we where there....the place was heaving !! My son is just about to finish his degree at The Brighton School of Modern music, I digress..............
Anyway this is my rather late sample of the 'BULLION STITCH'. I decided to use a very long 'DOLL' sewing needle, about 7 inches long to do the bullion stitches and had great fun doing them ! This stitch is quite a complex stitch to do, but luckily I have been doing them for many years so they were'nt a problem for me.....

I hope you like my little beaded tree, and thank you all for visiting my blog !!!!

Hello all, at last we have a decent day (weatherwise) here in the uk ! The weather here has been awful, all week ! This weeks TAST STITCH, I can only describe as mindbending ??? I have to admit that I found this stitch a real headache...... In saying that, I played safe and went with an evenweave fabric and did a little cross stitch design ! Its been so long since I did cross stitch but I am very pleased with how it turned out !!

This design is meant for a 'BISCORNU' pincushion......I urge you to google this strange word and you will find the most wonderful colllectable the way, the word means 'QUIRKY....ODDLY SHAPED "
Anyway where ever you are, have a very happy and wonderful week end and thank you for visiting my little creative corner........xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
