I am still in the learning process of designing to work these TAST stitches. It is tough and interesting. Sometimes the satisfaction is there, but other times not so much. But the idea of developing each every aspect of the design with stitches lifts me up.

 

The working of this interesting stitch is on SharonB’s Pintangle. The stitch worked as filling.

Other linear  and isolated TAST stitches  need to worked to fill in the gaps. The flowers will blossom with detached chains. the paisley is also there.
