CQJP and TAST week 47

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 DSC08719Border 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.



CQJP and TAST week 45

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.
