I joined the Take A Stitch Tuesday project in 2012 to teach myself embroidery and learn from others; these are my stitches.
There is a new 2018 version active; visit this website if you would like to join or just have a look at all the beautiful stitching.
After losing it for over 6 months I finally found my joy in embroidery again, and continued with my TAST stitching. This is how my second sampler is looking at the moment: besides adding some stitches I seamed the edges because they were seriously starting to unravel.
You can see all my stitches so far in chronological order here on Flickr;

TAST 2012 Stitch 32: Cast On Stitch
This stitch was a first for me: I’m ashamed to say it but I couldn’t bring myself to finish it :
Apart from french knots (even these I use only sparingly) I really dislike all the knot-type stitches, and this one was no exception. But because it takes relatively long to finish this stitch it’s even more tedious to work. So I made two of them and moved on to the next stitch… (if you look carefully in the first image they are the red dots on the left just below satin stitch).
