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!


  1. You HAVE been busy! Doesn't it feel nice to catch up? I like the different look your various Buttonhole Wheel Cups have, and the Pekinese stitches are awesome, as it the Italian Border star.

  2. Wow! Such beautiful work!

  3. Thank you so much for the comments. I really like the buttonhole wheel cup. I think you could do a great underwater scene using this stitch ( along with other ones).

  4. Oh such beautiful samplers, love the first cup-stitch one! Well done!

  5. Really nice stitching Valerie and great variations.

  6. just popped in from Sharon`s link on pintangle, great examples of the stitches, will join your band of followers.

  7. I never would have thought to do this one with ribbon. I really like how it looks. Great catch up stitches, too. I need to do that, too.
