How lazy am I? the tast2010 is on its 37th week , and Iam posting the stitch from 21st week.
the stitch is quite simple,done properly looks like a tulip.Mine was everything else but Tulip.let’s see the stitch samples-
first I tried the stitch, used different colours and angles to form a line,with cretan stitch, and inside 2 lines of arrowhead stitch.
I tried to do geometrical [triangle?square?diamond?] shaped motifs with this stitch. One important thing is that- our focus should be on the idea behind this sampler rather than the sampler itself!
Now the stitch is in a line,then they are facing away from each other,arranging themselves inside feather stitch,falling in a line of laced buttonhole.later 2 times falling in line[ this could be used as filling stitch also].
The stitch and its inverse in a row with a straight stitch thrown in between.the stitch on top of fan shaped buttonhole stitch, in between buttonhole wheel stitch,Thought this stitch looked like a fish, made them swim on 6 rows of running stitch[ this can also be filling stitch]
The stitch done inbetween cross stitches,then some individual variations of the stitch, used twisted chain stitch and arranged some beads.
These two motifs I can wholly agreed to have copied the ideas of fellow members of the TAST 2010 challenge from flickr.
the samplers now-
I enjoyed doing this stitch, though I couldn’t stick to my 4 inch sampler, trying more variations kept me on the track.
