Take a Stitch TuesdayTAST Stitch 52 - Sheaf Stitch
TAST Stitch 2 - Buttonhole Stitch
OK. I'm going to get on my soapbox and argue that this stitch is not properly called the Buttonhole Stitch. Buttonhole is a knotted stitch used to make...buttonholes! This is Blanket Stitch, a looped stitch, and is used for decorative edgings and all sorts of clever things. For a more thorough explanation check out Marion Scoular's page on the subject.
The Diva Challenge
This week's Diva Challenge is to spill something on your tile and use that as your string. I spilled some red watercolor reminiscent of a drink I had in the French Quarter the day before and then
tangled on it when it was dry.
I also had a chance to do a tile for Diva Challenge 276 which was too tangle while moving. I did this tile on the plane. There was quite a bit of turbulence and not a lot of light so I decided to use an 02 micron instead of an 01.
I hope you are all enjoying this last week of August!
