This week’s TAST 2012 challenge stitch is couching. I have used couching very sparingly on my embroideries. Whenever there was thread which was difficult to work with, I used couching. Still not very comfortable with this stitch, though. I was working on a tunic till today, so , still in the process of analyzing the ideas for couching.

Thought, I ‘ll start working on some simple rows and then see, how it goes.
1- These three rows are simple couching stitches, done on pearl cotton, with cotton skein.

Let me brood some more on couching.
