This week’ stitch of the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB is up and down feather stitch. This stitch was part of the earlier TAST challenge. I had posted my old sampler here. After dealing with the variations of the stitch last time, this time I tried working this stitch with other TAST stitches. The sampler –

3.A line of feather stitch is worked over the up and down feather stitch in the first row, small up and down feather stitches are worked in dark green in the spaces of up and down feather stitch row in the second sample. Not very impressive though!
