I have stated before that I am way behind in doing the TAST challenge stitches. The last ones that I did were for weeks 15 and 16 and here it is week 23 now. Week 15 was the oyster stitch. I showed it and someone asked to trade for it and I did, so I decided to make another to replace it. I made it very similar to the original but not exactly.
Here is the replacement ATC. It also has a needle punched background of wool rovings on a felt base.
I skipped several weeks and went to week 20 for this one. It is a variation of the Butterfly chain stitch. I painted a piece of 18 count Aida cloth to stitch onto.
I got my Janome Xpression out last night and had a good play with it. I tried out several different fibers, ribbons and such and made backgrounds for some ATC’s.More on this later.
