TAST 2012 Week 43 Buttonhole Wheel Cup and more catch up!

I am actually on time this week with my TAST Stitch.  Here is a picture of what I have done.

I love how this looks with thicker threads. I really like the rayon ribbon on the bottom right.  I also like the shine of the silk in the top right.

Here are 3 more stitches that I finished in the last week or so.  

My eight year old son thinks the one above looks like a water bug.

I used beads instead of a french knot for some of these stitches.  

Now I only need to do one more, and I will be all caught up!

TAST 2012 Week 40 Beaded hedebo edge and Week 32

I finished this week's stitch: Beaded hedebo edge and also did week 32: cast on stitch.

You can see them both below.

First the beaded hedebo edge:

This stitch was satisfying to do as I saw the results--especially when adding the beads.

This next one is the cast on stitch, which I love to do.  I really love the texture of this stitch.  What I really want is a very long and large sized milliners needle so that I can make them really long.
