*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)
- Closed fly stitch
- Plaited fly stitch
- Reversed fly stitch
- Threaded fly stitch
- Reversed threaded fly stitch
- Whipped fly stitch
- Reversed whipped fly stitch
Here’s what she wrote for TAST 2012 Week 1: Fly Stitch
- You can read her instructions and see inspiring examples there.
- Please follow her procedure and put a link to your published Fly Stitch pictures in the comments of the latest TAST post here. Just click the post title, and scroll down to the comment section!
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 🙂
