The name of the 14th week st of the stitch challenge TAST2010 by Sharon, is quite long. But my sampler of the st is quite small.I started the basic herrinbone with a thickthread[twine]
buttonhole h-bone st, -1
the fabric is handloom cotton,striped.Made marks to make the stitch even.

3rd line-changed the width of the herringbone st.
But-hole h-bone samp-3
4th line -alternated 2 colours.

6th line-the whole stitch is over a line of cretan stitch.

7th line- Added sequins and beads on the peaks .
last line-detached chain, and straight sts are done on the valleys.
I throughly enjoyed doing this stitch sampler.
The 13th week stitch of the TAST2010 Challenge by Sharon is Raised cup st.
I have never tried stitches of this type,earlier for stitch explorer challenge, I tried trellis st and casalguidi st, but I can’t say I have totally explored or mastered these 2 stitches.
This time around, I did not get many ideas, just tried the st over and over with different threads-
1.large triangle- similar to pearl cotton.
2.rim jim thread
3.3 strands cotton skein
4.small pearl cotton
5.6 strands cotton skein
7.varigated cotton skein 6 strands.

3rd line-In this I altered between- wide and narrow stitch
4th line-large and small variation of the stitch.

After seeing other’s samplers, I feel, I didn’t explore this stitch very well.
