The first stitch here is for Week 39 and is Buttonhole Picots with Bullion Knots.
It is supposed to be worked on the edge of the fabric which would allow the picots to be more pronounced but I have put it in the centre to keep it consistent with the other samples.
Week 40 is a variation of Buttonhole Picots but this time using Chain Stitch to make the picots.
I like the way in this sample better than the other one.
Week 41 is Magic Chain Stitch using two different coloured threads in the needle at the same time and then alternately changing them to work the stitch--very effective.
Lastly week 42-this weeks stitch is Woven Cross Stitch.
I like this stitch and I can think of many uses for it as long as I remember to use it that is.
There are only two week left in the TAST challenge and then these samples will be stitched into a hand made book- when I get around to making the book that is.
Again I have really enjoyed participating in this challenge-I have learned a lot of new stitches which is always exciting.
I am glad that Sharon is a mad keen reseacher of stitches because if it were up to me I would never have found them.
