Continuation of the banding

image

I have swapped over to a piece of aida to continue with the band sampler. Of course they will be sewn together later on. I have been following TAST at http://pintangle.com/tast-faq/ where Sharon has been doing one stitch on a Tuesday on most weeks and publishing them on a blog. There is an amazing collection of stitches on Sarah Whittle’s site as well http://sarahwhittle.blogspot.co.uk. I have followed a few from both sites and rather enjoying the restricted stitch. Sometimes you need to go back to where you started and my starting point was embroidery, i feel I am falling in love with embroidery all over again.

The fabric book is moving along slowly and the fourth page is now finished imageI rather enjoyed stitching this, I can’t take the credit for the design as i saw something similar on Pintrest, sorry i don’t know who, if i find it again i will post the link. I love Alliums and have a few very large ones growing at the allotment. Daises are also one of my favourite flowers so maybe that will be the next page.

    I loved learning new stitches. I can’t remember half of them now. I followed Sharon for a while a couple of years ago – but ran out of time to continue. It’s a blog worth following as you say.
