The working of this week’s stitch is on SharonB’s blog. I worked this isolated stitch with other TAST stitches in this sampler.
1.The twisted satin stitch with beads are worked with stem stitch curve, herringbone stitch, buttonhole wheel, Algerian eye and fly stitches,
2.The other stitches that form the motifs in the first row are, bullion knots, French knots, pistil stitches and arrowhead stitch worked as a star. The second row has chain stitch circles, Italian border stitches, basque and buttonhole stitches worked in circles. The twisted satin with beads are worked with these stitches.
3. Set of five and eight twisted satin with beads are worked in the first two samples, Cretan stitch worked as a triangle and square herringbone are other stitches in the next two samples in the first row. The second row has detached chain stitches, set of three beads, woven cross stitch and chevron stitch worked as a square
Before working the beaded twisted satin stitches, the other stitches were worked on this sampler-
I prefer to work the satin stitch with tapestry needle and perle cotton or the cone thread and the beads with thinner thread. It is time consuming, but better than trying to insert the bead to a thicker needle. Maybe, after working with # 5 perle cotton I could change my view.
For now looking forward to the next week’s stitch and catching up with last week’s twisted satin stitch.
