The idea of working a sampler book is slowly progressing. The basic idea is to work embroidery on 6inches by 6 inches square. The stitches are a combination of TAST stitches and other embroidery stitch treatments. These other embroidery samples are inspired by the works seen on the internet and some of my ideas. All these notions are more in mind at this point. With the help of the online classes taken with Sharon, I am trying to build one embroidery page at a time. When the TAST rerun was announced, I thought of working this idea as a personal challenge.
Page1- I have started this page with fly stitches. Continuous fly stitches worked in zigzag pattern.
