I want to learn the process of building seams for embroidery work. These are the attempts made with this stitch as the base.

I started working this stitch sampler. The working of this TAST stitch is on SharonB’s blog. We had done coral stitch and wrapped coral stitch before on this challenge. The working of these stitches are also on her blog. This stitch closely resembles the rope stitch we did last week. I  started with some zigzag variations and moved on to working versions of two rows of this stitch.

I’ll start on some stitch combinations and build some seams along with that on this sampler.
