Some TAST 2012 Stitching

Knotted Buttonhole Stitch

Knotted Loop Stitch

Italian Border Stitch

I seem to be in a permanent catch up mode with this years TAST stitching. But that is OK for me.

TAST 2012 - Drizzle Stitch

I finished my Drzzle stitches for TAST 2012 almost in time. I have never worked this stitch before but will definitely use it in future. I think it makes great flower centres.

Cosy Blanket

I started sewing the top about 8 years ago. Now I wanted a lightweight, cosy blanket for myself. I used flannel and a wool batting.

PS: Maybe I should have taken the photos before I had my first nap in it.

TAST 2012 Update

I am really behind with my TAST stitching. These are my first Oyster stitches. I immediately fell in love with this stitch: easy to work and makes a great texture.

I think, my up and down buttonhole stitches are a bit boring but I can see  a great potential for this stitch when used in Crazy Quilting combined with other stitches.
