TAST 2012 #13

Week 13 of Take A Stitch Tuesday. This week: Catch-up Week.
I decided this was a good opportunity for me to finish my sampler of the first 12 stitches, since I was almost running out of cloth anyway. I finished the buttonhole edging and stitched the lettering. Since I limited myself so far each week by using only one colour for one stitch, I went a little overboard this time and used as many stitches and colours as possible :) I like the way it feels a little bit crazy!
Now to figure out what to do with my sampler. It's a little too big to make into a stitchbook of some kind, and I don't really intend on displaying it yet. Maybe someday when I have an actual craft room...

P.S. remember to check out my Giveaway!

Week 12 van Take A Stitch Tuesday. Catch-up Week.
Ik had niets in te halen dus ik vond deze week een goede gelegenheid om mijn sampler (EDIT: merklap?!) van de eerste 12 weken af te maken. Ik maakte het festonneerwerk rond de randen af en borduurde de letters. Tot nu toe gebruikte ik elke week maar 1 kleur voor 1 steek, dus deze week sloeg ik een klein beetje door en gebruikte zoveel steken en kleuren als ik maar kon. Ik vind het effect wel prettig gestoord eigenlijk :)
Nu te besluiten wat ik ermee zal doen. Het is te groot om er een soort boekje van te maken, en ik was ook niet echt van plan om het op te hangen. Maar misschien ooit als ik een echt knutselkamertje heb...

P.S. vergeet niet om even naar mijn Giveaway te kijken!

  1. Sampler kun je misschien nog wel het best vertalen met merklap. Mooi trouwens! Ik wil ook weer gaan borduren, geloof ik. ;)

  11. Thank for the nice comments!

    If you want to join TAST it's still possible, you can try catching up or just start doing the stitches from the start: there's no time limit. And it will still run for the rest of the year.

  15. Gosh, it's been so long since I did a sampler. This makes me really miss stitching! Thanks for posting this. It's so cute and brings back fond memories. Stop in and see me at Quirky Vistas. I found your post at Mop it up Mondays.
