TAST - Stitch 122


I'm not sure why but this stitch caused me so much angst.  I stitched 5 or 6 versions before I was happy with the result.  In the end I decided to change the stitch, slightly , and add beads to the top and bottom of the stitch. 

 I want to make bands of stitching that are to decorate pinch purses using stitches 121 to 130, so I have added a couple of extra rows of stitching to achieve this.  After so many false starts I'm quite pleased with the final result.

For the pinch purses I have bought a set of springs on- line from China.  Big difference in price between on-line dealers, ranging from 50c each up to $4 each, and there was no freight charged and they arrived in the mail within the week.  I posted a letter to a neighbouring suburb last week and last I heard it still hadn't arrived!

Pop over to Pintangle to see what others have done with this stitch.

What a beautiful band you have created with these combined stitches, beads and colours.


Even if it took you a while, it has turned out very well!

I’m pleased with the final result, but not the process.
