TAST-week 6




Here is my take on the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge. For week 6 the stitch is the Algerian eye stitch, similar to an eyelet stitch. I am still working in an ATC format with felt as the base, but this time I added some painted cheesecloth before stitching. I used a pearl crown rayon embroidery thread.

Great texture to this with the cheesecloth.

I see you've been felting too!

Love the look of the background and you've made this stitch look really pretty, especially the one in the centre.

Great colours, and I love what you did with the cheesecloth. Looks almost like a delicate little spiderweb.

The cheesecloth adds a great extra layer of interest. Almost looks like critters making themself a web :)

Beautiful Micki! I love how you stretched the cheesecloth - it looks like freeform stitching.

That great cheesecloth texture is an idea I intend to borrow. Your rainbow Algerian Eye is great!
