Fly Stitch has so many possibilities!

Fly Stitch, alternating up and down, with French knots. Lots of visual action.

Closed Fly stitch -- foliage potential; rib lines could be fun to play with

Reversed Fly Stitch -- one layer going one direction, another layer on top going the other.

Some artsy shots 😉

I certainly feel I know this stitch better even though I did it last year.

I need more variety of threads! Still haven’t done my shopping.

Recap Week 1

Here it is, our first weekly recap! What’s it for, you may ask? I will tell you 🙂

I will list all links to any stitch samples that were added during the previous week at this blog, every Monday around noon. The main reason I am doing this is for the stitchers who may have delays in getting their Stitch of the Week samples worked, photographed, and uploaded to the internet. I encourage you to add your link in the comments section of that particular Stitch of the Week even if it is “late” or you joined in the fun after this challenge had begun. 

Everyone will know that new links have been added to past stitches because I will re-post them here. We all deserve some feedback and applause, so click through, leave comments, enjoy the creativity!

New stitch sample links Jan 15 through today (all Fly Stitch, obviously)

Stitch of the Week 1: Fly Stitch

*crack!* That’s the starting gun for our TAST marathon! Let the fun begin!

Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary page with instructions for Fly Stitch. Last year I thought this was a good stitch with which to begin, and I still do!

Here are all the fly stitch variations listed on that page (for your convenience, listed here to open in a new window)

Here’s what she wrote for TAST 2012 Week 1: Fly Stitch

Edited in: Stitch inspiration! Brought to my attention by Kathleen, holly and evergreens from Mary Corbett’s Needle n’ Thread website  http://www.needlenthread.com/2012/12/stitch-play-embroidered-greenery.html  &  http://www.needlenthread.com/2012/12/stitch-play-simple-greenery-part-2.html Also the featured stitchers from 2012 at PinTangle http://pintangle.com/2012/01/08/tast-week-1-highlights

You may also post your link to your Fly Stitch pictures in THIS comment section, no matter when you get it done… AND…

If you are following this blog, you’ll have a bonus benefit!

If you miss a stitch but then are able to work it later, you can choose to put your link on the matching Stitch of the Week post (as well as the TAST comments, link above).  Each week, I will round up ALL NEW stitch LINKS entered at this blog, whether they are from the current stitch or a past one. Yours won’t be lost back there on the old Stitch of the Week post. I will put them up Monday (noon-ish PST) in a weekly recap post, about 12 hours before I put up the Stitch of the Week.

Of course, I will be putting my TAST 2012 Re-run stitches right here on this blog, because that’s why I started it in the first place 🙂

Happy Stitching!
