TAST is providing me with a grounding in the basic stitches of embroidery and ways to build on those stitches through variations and additions.
Grounded has eco dyed flour sacking and a Dorset button I made several years ago.
Making Dorset buttons can be as addictive as embroidery! I was on a kick of making Dorset buttons for cuffs for a while.
I used all of the suggestions from Tuesday Stitchers (thanks, ladies) and improved "Cultivate" -- still don't really like it because the trellis looks so messy and out of place, but I like it a lot better than I did before.
I toned down the stark white, went over the vines with some darker floss, added leaves, and lots of kantha stitching. What I liked is using my favorite stitch; I love kantha stitching. It is the most pleasurable and meditative stitch for me.
This week: the chevron stitch!
