Tast week 34


This week's stitch was the Portuguese stem stitch. It was not difficult to do , but in the narrow curves it was not easy to keep it even. I have used cotton perle 5 DMC and have added a few french knots too. It gives a nice relief if you need that one day.
This is on my TAST sampler, which is growing every week.
Thanks to Sharon B. for the instructions on her blog every week :)

I find them wery nice. When they are noe even thay are handmade. That is just the best. Keep up. Looking to see your TAST sampler one day.

Your sample is great Ati and the french knots really do finish it off.

Ati, I love the lines you did with this stitch. Great work! And like Doreen said the French knots are the perfect finishing touch.

Oh, Ati, I really like this combination! I did it with floss, and still haven't gotten to it with a perle - but I will!

Did you see that Sharon's blog is moving? She has a link on the old one to the new one.
