I have long wanted a record of stitches and finally decided this is the year to make one. I have been in TAST 1, 2 and 3 groups and though I have lots of photos I have nothing that I can pick up easily to view a stitch. Sometimes I have forgotten a stitch name, sometimes how to work a known stitch.
I have chosen to use Aida 14 count cloth and most likely will stick with Perle 8 threads.
When I have completed this project I will have stitched all TAST 4 samples that I missed last year.
I am working this from No. 1 stitch and to date have stitched 15. Sharon’s stitch lessons are now up to 100. Congratulations Sharon on teaching so many to learn new stitches. I know it is much appreciated by all.
