I have been working on Beyond TAST challenge this week. A sampler motif with layering the stitches was completed. I borrowed some ideas from crewel embroidery, and incorporated them on my motif. The sampler is being continued with more of this technique with smaller details.
SSS challenge has been beckoning for the past few weeks, I am holding the temptation because of the time factor.
The idea of adding peach colour thread is being implemented on this old yoke. I should be able to complete it tomorrow.

I will be happy to squeeze in some stitches from SSS challenge this week.

This time also it is an interesting concept on Beyond TAST challenge. The idea of layering the stitches is a new thing for me. Kutch work, mirror work, couching – on all these a certain amount of interlacing, layering were worked. But to work a piece with the main purpose of layering with stitches is different.
Sharon had started the flow with Rice stitch. I am keeping aside the possibilities of rice stitch and square boss stitch for the time being. Crewel embroidery details seems like a good place to start.
A linen bought from IKEA was prepared to work this sampler.

Layering with stitches is a different angle which needs to be explored further.
