TAST - Week 13, Satin Stitch

Week 13 of TAST is sort of a work in progress (WIP). I was out of town and had a lot to catch up on, so didn't really add much to my tag but definitely wanted to have something...a tree.

I wasn't going to add more but then Debra on our Tuesday Stitchers blog posted her block showing how she couched using satin stitching. It really caught my eye and I wanted to be sure to remember to try that on a future CQ block, so I have since added a couched ribbon with dark brown satin stitching along the upper part of my tag.

I co-author the Tuesday Stitchers blog with a wonderful group of stitchers from Canada, Australia, England and various parts of the USA taking part in TAST and/or CQJP. There is lots of eye candy on the blog, so pop on over for a visit. We would love to have your input. New work is posted every Saturday and Sunday through the remainder of the year.

Now here's one I actually know. I can remember my mother showing me this stitch. The ribbon looks great!

I'm always interested to see how you integrate a tree into your tag each time. This one is great!

That tree looks magnificent. Well done!
