TAST Week Five Herringbone
This stitch is a happy one to work with, and I show you how it's incorporated into one of my ongoing embroideries. I'm not making a stitch sampler, unlike quite a few TAST participants, and I'm not using an evenweave or counted stitch type of base, but rather working freehand, with no prearranged lines and no weave to work with. For me this is more fun,but I admire enormously the accomplishment of a lot of the other participant work I've been seeing, too. For me,the unexpectedness of freestyle is what attracts.
Speaking of which, if you want to see a few quick studies I ripped out this week in monotypes, go here
