TAST 2 Weeks 37 and 38

I am late with one stitch and early with the other.
The first stitch for week 37 in the TAST 2 challenge at Sharon B's is Kiko's Flower stitch.
This is a pretty stitch and easy to work out also-it consists of a Detatched Chain stitch- 2 Buttonhole stitches and a Bullion stitch to make each petal.

Week 38 is Picot Chain stitch--which is a chain stitch with a little Picot edge on the right.
If you click on the link above you will see the instructions for this.

I am going off on a cruise for 2 weeks leaving on Sunday so this will be my last post before I leave.
I have started getting everything ready to pack into my suitcase including the sea sickness tablets and some stitching to do if I get bored :))
I will certainly have to do some more catching up on TAST when I get back.
There are only 6 weeks of the TAST 2 challenge left--gosh the year has flown by fast.
See you all when we get back.

Oh that flower stitch is so lovely!
I suspect you could really stitch up something ultra special with all these stitches you are learning.
Your displays have really brought my appreciation up for embroidery :)

Very pretty flower stitch Doreen - you must have a fantastic collection of these by now - wonderful library.
Hope you and Stephen have a brilliant cruise - don't forget your sketchbook (along with everything else!)
