This week’s stitch was not announced because Sharon was not feeling  well enough to post the details of the stitch. I think she is better now. I had missed a few stitches when I had gone to India for my nephew’s wedding.
This stitch was the 68th week stitch on this TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB. I had done this stitch sampler during the earlier TAST challenge. I am trying to incorporate this stitch with other TAST stitches this time.
