TAST 2015

After many failed attempts over the years, I have once again put my hand up to participate in a 2015 re-run of Sharon B’s very popular “Take A Stitch Tuesday”/TAST.

Once again I had the feeling that those gremlins were going to mess up my attempts, but I am pleased and relieved to say that I completed the two stitches a day ahead of schedule .

To be honest, the buttonhole stitch was done to schedule, but the fly stitch lagged into the second week.

It feels so good to be returning to hand work again, but I am realising just how much my hands have stiffened through doing mainly machine work. Remember the old saying of “use it or lose it”: I can appreciate that now.

I have chosen to combine the dedicated stitches into a scene rather than a true sampler.

I have used the FLY stitch for the palm tree branches/fronds, and the birds flying through, and BUTTONHOLE for the land.

Now to remember “how” to link this post to Pintangle to show the boss that I have actually managed to stitch.
