The the last week of November Take A Stitch Tuesday used the Arrow or Arrowhead Stitch. A relaxing stitch to do.
The fourth week of November Crazy Quilt Journal Project used the Arrowhead stitch which I really enjoyed doing. To complete this week I added a tatted autumn leaf made with Lizbeth thread.
This completes my Crazy Quilt Block for November! Only one more month to go……….Yeah!
The 3rd week of November the Take A Stitch Tuesday stitch was the Portuguese Border Stitch.
This was an interesting stitch which involved 3 steps. The base, the first side and the second side.
On the 3rd quarter of my November Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used the Portuguese Border Stitch in several different colors.
The Take A Stitch Tuesday stitch for the 2nd week in November was a type of Chain stitch. Called Magic chain stitch or Chequered chain stitch it was a fun stitch to work. It was done using 2 threads on one needle.
After using the Magic chain stitch on the 2nd quarter of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project November block it is half done.
The stitch for the 1st week in November Take A Stitch Tuesday was similar to last week. The difference was this was Open base Needlewoven picot rather than closed. Once again it used the weaving which I enjoyed. This reminds me of Teneriff embroidery which I have done on shirts.
I enjoyed using the Open base Needlwoven picot stitch on the first quarter of my November Crazy Quilt Journal Project Block. I am using earth colors for my November block.
The stitch for the last week in October for Take A Stitch Tuesday week 44 had two names. Closed base needlewoven picot or Needlewoven picot leaf.
It was a neat stitch. I enjoyed the weaving. With a 5th Tuesday in October I added my week’s stitch to last weeks stitch.
To complete my October Crazy Quilt Journal Project Block I added the TAST Needlewoven picot leaf stitch and also a tatted Kokopelli to go along with the
Southwest theme of this block. This was a fun Block!
The stitch for week 41 of Take A Stitch Tuesday was Knotted Loop Stitch. It was an ok stitch.
This week was the second quarter of my October Crazy Quilt Journal Project block. The Knotted Loop stitch worked well on this, my southwest Block. I used Lizbeth thread in Falling leaves and Med Blue.
