I have to get back to my sampler but there are so many other things to do. Next week I am going to try and get up to the 95 row mark which will see me caught up.
I was going through my RSS feed blogs yesterday and on 'Needled' by Kate Davies, which is a knitting blog, I found a wonderful entry about the work of Rachel Kay Shuttleworth. Kate is using inspiration from some of her work for a commission. She has to design a knitting pattern inspired by the collection.

The coverlet she has chosen as her inspiration features 100 feathers which feature 100 different stitches. In her notes Rachel (the embroiderer) says that the coverlet is a sampler of line stitches. Although not nearly as grand, all of us who have been taking part in TAST with Sharron are following in the same tradition.
