TAST week 1

I finally got my sampler set up, and the stitching done for the first week of TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday). You can read all about it here.

These are the colors I pulled from my silk box. The skein on the left is my inspiration; all the colors are being picked to coordinate with that skein. It is Waterlilies (silk floss) in the Tahiti colorway. I still want to look at my Pearl #8 drawer to see what colors I can find there.


Here are more colors:


The challenge is weekly, continuing for a year, so I think there will be opportunity to use most of these colors.

I finally found a piece of material, got the basting in, and did the first week stitch: Fly stitch. You can see that I left some room for a header/title. I didn't do too much exploring on the stitch this week, mostly because I was already behind, but I have some good ideas for the stitch for this week: stay tuned!

Great colors. I love the row of fly stitches--it's perfect as is. I can't wait to see what you do with the buttonhole stitches! Now I'm tempted to pick this up and join the fun.

The fly stitch made a great border. You are so organized! Great beginning.
