This week’s TAST2010 challenge stitch has along name.It is longer than variations I have tried! LOL!.
I started with 4 variations, thinking I’ll add some more while stitching, But after doing 4 lines of satin stitch,I decided 4 is more than enough!
The basic lines-
The first line is laced with thin zari border[the idea was better on mind than on fabric]
the 2nd line,I tried a lighter colour thread in 6strands-the effect was not very appealing.The next 2 lines I tried with six atrands of cotton skeins it was better.
For these 2 lines I added beads –
And my Raised herringbone band sampler in it’s full glory!
P S : -Next time if there is a stitch which needs satin stitch base, I’ll try 2or 3 variations on the same line!
