* TAST update

->I'm moving my blog; you can find all my TAST posts here: Studio Paars - Embroidery stitches: TAST
->Mijn blog verhuist; je vindt al mijn TAST posts hier: Studio Paars - Borduursteken: TAST


It's been a while since my last TAST update. I'd like to show how my second sampler is turning out so far. These are stitches 13 (Satin Stitch) through 27 (Basque stitch). I want to fill it up completely.

Het is een tijdje geleden dat ik mijn laatste TAST update liet zien. Dit is hoe mijn tweede merklap (?) er nu uit ziet. De bedoeling is dat 'ie helemaal gevuld wordt met verschillende steken.

It took me a while to get the hang of this one.

Steek 27: Bonnet Stitch 
Het duurde even voordat ik deze door had.

Really liked this one for the flowing lines it makes.

Ik vond deze erg mooi bij de vloeiende lijnen.

  1. I am amazed by embroidery. I love how this looks!

  2. Beautiful!! I used to do a lot of embroidery when I was younger. I miss doing it. Today I would need a magnifying glass, so I stick to paint!

    Very lovely! Found you via Be Colorful . A table that I revamped got featured today. Hope you will hop over and see it!


  3. I love how this looks, too. I love that it's dense with the stitching and how you've worked the names into the sampler. I usually don't think to do that.
