TAST Feather Stitch

This week’s stitch was fun to do. The first is face to face Single Feather stitch with side variations.

Wool and Edmar threads

Again Single stitch versions, one whipped and beaded using Edmar threads.

Spanish Knotted Feather stitch. I had trouble keeping it straight as the material was soft. That’s my excuse anyway. For my own satisfaction I did it properly the second time. I used wool for the first one and cotton for the other.

Green Feather stitch and purple Closed Feather stitch-A.K.A Double Chain

Double Feather stitch and Long-armed Feather stitch – A.K.A Slanting Cretan. This last was another I had bother with, until I realized I needed to take the tiniest ‘bite’ when catching downward.

Single Feather stitch, Face to face and back to back. I found a piece of braid? and fancied couching it on the Face to face version. What do you think? Edmar Lola for these. I’m using my left over threads so some are a little ‘worn’.

Lavender in Feather and bullions

Willow and two leaves which aren’t too clear. Chain stitch trunk on the tree.
I used wool for the leaves and Edmar Frost for the tree.

Lastly my wreath, using Edmar Frost and Maderia metallic threads
