Lots of photos following, so brace yourself. I decided to do a CQ block - in pink, monochromatic (mostly) - using all of the stitches I have learned in TAST so far plus a couple of extras. This is the resulting block. Notice I did not use one single bead! You have no idea how hard that was for me to avoid the temptation. Really!
This is the naked block I started out with.
Close-up of the center floral motif.
First, let me point out I added some sheer floral printed fabric over a couple of the shiny sections. This one is gathered slightly. I left some of the satin show along the seam.
This is a little darker area from the sheer and is over a darker pink. Again, the satin shows along the buttonhole stitch area.
I will list the stitches from top to bottom rows on each of the following close-ups.
Cretan, French knot, knotted Cretan, buttonhole wheel (1/2), chain, French knot, lazy daisy/detached chain:
French knot, Herringbone (both light pink and dark pink rows), Algerian Eyelet, fern leaf:
This is kind of mixed up, but there are SRE petal stitch flowers, lazy daisy flowers, French knots, bullion rose and stitch, stem stitch rose and stem stitch, spider web rose:
Web is straight stitch with couched connections; spider is whipped wheel with a little satin stitching over body and straight stitch for extending legs:
Basque, scroll stitch, butterfly chain, French knots and lazy daisy (detached chains), straight stitch, up and down buttonhole:
(From left to right in pie-shaped section) - French knot, buttonhole wheel (1/4), lazy daisy, straight stitch, French knot, running stitch, crossed buttonhole, bonnet:
(butterfly) satin stitch, chain stitch, Fly 'Y' stitch; (below butterfly and in no particular order) French knots, wheat ear, straight, lazy daisy, feather stitch (bottom):
Wheat ear, back stitch: (lace is added)
Barred chain, half chevron, oyster, chain, buttonhole:
Chain (3 rows), zig zag chain, Palestrina, cable chain, Chevron:
There! I think that should be at least 35 unless I left out a seam somewhere. I you don't get close to the same count, let me know. This was so much fun and I will likely do it again, using my tags for reference.
