A new month, a new week, a new TAST challenge and a new linen page to work on.
This week's stitch is Herringbone. This is a stitch I've heard of but I don't think I've ever actually tried it!
Here's the close up of my sample...
I had a bit of a play with the basic stitch, changing the stich lengths, spacing and regularity.
I particularly enjoyed layering different stitch "frequencies" in the different colours.
It's an interesting stitch this one; I like the effect of the contrasting colours. I enjoyed it although I did struggle a little to fill the space this time.
I'm really inspired by the work of everyone again this week. It's wonderful to be able to see all the different interpretations. I absolutely love these! Two beautiful herringbone designs on Temari (kumo temari and Japanese Temari) - never seen them before... wonder how they're done..... No, mustn't start thinking that, I do NOT need a new craft!!
