Some more samples of square boss stitch were worked on the sampler.

In this part of the sampler, the square boss stitches are combined in this order with other TAST stitches-Rice stitch, double cross stitch, square herringbone and Algerian eye stitch.

Detached chain stitches are worked below square boss stitches in the first sample. The stitch worked over lace along with pistil stitches and beads in the second row, the square boss stitches [at least try to] keep the beads in place over the crosses in the last row.

A lovely stitch to work with on my sampler.

After starting this yoke, in between I worked on 14th week stitch on TAST 2014 challenge. Completing that sampler, this work was continued. The base colour of the tunic is white. So white threads were incorporated into this yoke. A few sequins were added to the centre.

I  am planning to add silver beads on the border to match with oxidized silver accessories. If the yoke gets finished, it’ll have to be given to the tailor for sewing, which might take a while.
