The stitch for week 3 of TAST is the Feather stitch. I did not have experience with the Feather stitch but my work with the Fly and Buttonhole stitches prepared me. I was able to quickly stitch the sampler so I had time to do something else with the stitch. I created a blank card with a window to feature my Feather stitch embroidery.
I am not a Crazy Quilter. I joined TAST because of my interest in embroidery. But I think that viewing some of the embroidery samples stitched on Crazy Quilts influenced my card this week. In the past, I would have used a solid color for my card but this time I decided on a patterned paper.

I practiced the Feather stitch, Double Feather stitch, and the Closed Feather stitch.
