TAST 2012 week 42 = Italian border stitch

 Italian Border Stitch:

This week's tast challenge Italian border stitch is a new one to me.  I enjoyed it very much.

Kundan and sequins rangoli:  The first is made with sequins and the second one is with kundan stones.  I did these for my neighbor to decorate navarathiri kolu.

TAST week 41 - knotted loop stitch

Knotted Loop Stitch

This week's  Tast challenge knotted loop stitch is a new one to me.  I think this is more suitable for filling large areas.  I like this stitch very much.


I want to stitch this rose on my daughter's kurthi, before I try this on my hanky.  I used Anchor's kasuthi net for stitching cross stitch. Isn't it nice?

TAST WEEK 40 - Beaded Hedebo edging

This week's Tast challenge beaded hedebo edge stitch is an interesting and easy stitch.  It gives a flower look around the mirror work.  I enjoyed the stitch very much.
