Week 1 TAST Fly Stitch

I decided to participate in TAST 2012. Sharon B of Pin Tangle is the organizer of this wonderful project. Each week this year Sharon will present a stitch for participants to learn. Over 500 stitchers signed up for TAST 2012. This week I have been excited and in awe of the creative and unique entries from worldwide participants.

The stitch for Week 1 is the Fly Stitch. This is my first time stitching the Fly Stitch. I used DMC 6 strand floss. For this sampler I experimented with different variations of the Fly Stitch and varying amounts of strands (between 2 and 6).

I hope to also occasionally stitch pictures using stitches learned.

    What an interesting variation! Thank for your comment on my blog! 🙂

  2. Looks nice! I should really have my mom show me how to do some stitching and sewing! It seems to always come in handy!

  4. The fly stitch looks easy, but it really isn’t. You did really good with your first effort. It is hard to get the top of the y balanced repeatedly.
    I think we will have fun together. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Your fly stitch work is great! I didn’t get started this week due to being out of town for the holidays and cannot wait to get home and start!

    I also want to take a moment to invite you over to my blog to read about a quilt show I am hosting live on my blog beginning Feb 1. The show is called Crazy Quilts Are Quilts Too. The show is designed to bring awareness to all of us crazy quilters and the work we do! There are a host of fantastic prizes to be won! Hope you will come check out the information and hopefully participate!

    What an excellent idea! I absolutely adore embroidery and have not done any in months (maybe years!!). I have a huge castle which took me around two years to embroider – the picture was painted on fabric for me and I stitched the garden, walls etc. It is incredibly special but is packed safely away waiting for our restoration to complete so it can be re-hung without fear of damage. Keep it up and you will be producing things to cherish for years to come. 🙂
