So, FINALLY, here are my TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) stitches for Weeks 1, 2 and 3. They are no great shakes, believe me. But I have done them on my first CQJP block, which is now finished. To prove it, here are my pictures.
|Completed Block 1|
|Outline stitch (wrapped) scallops with fly stitch leaves|
In the first picture of the full block, you can see I also did the half wheel buttonhole seam treatment (with a nasty thread that shed a lot and was loosey goosey). Those are not technical terms, LOL. I should (and may) rip it out and do it over. I also did a reverse buttonhole motif on the green and added a bead to its center. Three examples.
The Feather Stitch is the Week 3 challenge, and I did a basic seam and added silk ribbon roses. It is one of my fall-back seam treatments, and I consider it cheating. But it finished off the block with the color that I needed there. I will do another feather stitch variation as I begin block #2 this weekend. :-)
Now, I just need to figure out where I need to load my pictures and do all the linky things that are the bane of my existence!!
Have a great weekend!
