6.In the first row the combination is with French knots and detached chain stitches. Up and down feather stitch row is embellished with Pekinese stitch and bullion knots are worked on the peaks. Unless I write down the detail of the last row, it may not be understood at a later date.

In this sampler, I couldn’t work many variations, but still tried some stitch combinations to make it more interesting. In this challenge, beads are used extensively to embellish these stitches by other TAST  participants, I am still waiting to start.

This week’ stitch of the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB is up and down feather stitch. This stitch was part of the earlier TAST challenge. I had posted my old sampler here. After dealing with the variations of the stitch last time, this time I tried working this stitch with other TAST stitches. The sampler –
