As I said the other day, I am participating in a challenge called TAST2012 along with hundreds of others. It is Take a stitch Tuesday and our challenge is to use the hand stitch put up each week on Pintangle. I have been a bit behind, but I did a bit of work and am now up to date.
This week's stitch is chevron stitch
and here are some shapes I did with it. On the right is a close up. If you click and enlarge, you will see that this is not what I intended to do, because my guide marks are still visible. I did a shell shape and then I didn't like it, so I unpicked it and did something else. I must say, my stitches got so small in the centre of the spiral and the top and bottom of the oval, that I really couldn't see quite what I was doing, but it turned out well anyway.
He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
