After working on some more samples this week’s triangular feather stitch sampler is completed.
The last part of the sampler-
6. In these rows, the triangles are worked in the same manner, the variations are only on the basic feather stitches.The first row is worked with up and down feather stitch. In the second row, the feather stitches are facing away from each other, making the first feather stitches look like chain stitches [ this detail is to remind me at a later date, the working of this sample] . The third row is worked with knotted feather stitches.
7 .In these samples, other TAST stitches are worked with triangular feather stitches. The other stitches are-french knots and Italian border stitches in the first row, wheat ear and fly stitches in the second row, chain and arrowhead stitch in the third row.
8 .The first row is worked with pistil stitches and sheaf stitches, the second row with herringbone, buttonhole variation and oyster stitches .
Maintaining the triangular part of this stitch I tried working two other stitches. In the third row, with closed buttonhole stitches and in the fourth row with basque stitches. I suppose we can try many options working like this.
With this last sample, the stitch sampler is completed.
