CQJP and TAST week

The Take A Stitch Tuesday week 32 was Cast On Stitch.  It is similar to casting on stitches in knitting.  I found it to be similar to the Bullion stitch we did in week 20…but this was easier for me to do.





On the 2nd week my Crazy Quilt Journal Project  for august I used a Running Stitch with the weeks Cast On Stitch.



CQJP and TAST week 25

This weeks stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday  was the Cable Chain stitch.  I found that if I made a mistake I wasn’t able to back up and correct it….so had to be very careful as I did the stitch.




On the third week of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project block for June  I used the Cable Chain stitch as well as chain stitch and running stitch.  It also has some silver rick rack and I tatted a purple butterfly  to add as well.


Week 13 was a catch up week for those who had gotten behind.


Take A Stitch Tuesday stitch was the Satin   stitch.  I didn’t  do very well with this stitch. I used metallic thread and it gave me a hard time.  I also had lots going on as we prepare  to leave the RV park in  Yuma, AZ where we spend the winter.





On the first quarter of my block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used  the Satin stitch, the fly stitch and running stitch .  I also used some gold rickrack to match  the gold rain drops. I like my color choices.



CQJP March and TAST week 10

The stitch for week 10 was the Running Stitch.  I had only done this in a single running stitch, not in combination. 





On the second quarter of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project I used the Running

Stitch in various stitch lengths and combinations.  I also used some lace.
