This week's TAST stitch is the French Knot. As many of you know, I have been adding a tree to each of my tags using the stitch for that particular week. Normally they are cone shaped trees for some reason so this week I decided to create another little tree shape. I thought the French Knot would be perfect.
If you look closely you will see a little lamb came to enjoy the shade under the tree. I haven't created any border yet, but will at some point add more stitching to each of my tags.
I also fit in some shopping this week and found an awesome source for old skeleton type keys for my crazy quilt project. I also found some lace items for this and future projects. Some of it is shown below.
I was also asked to write a short article about crazy quilting for the Quilt Gallery blog. If you aren't familiar with this blog be sure to check them out. There offer lots of information, eye candy, contests and giveaways but are normally more geared toward traditional quilting. I didn't want us crazy quilters left out so they asked me to share a little CQ knowledge with their readers. Here is the link if you are interested:
