The third week of December the stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday was Knotted Chain Stitch.  I also used some Buttonhole stitch as well as some rick rack attached with gold thread using the  Couching  stitch.  This is the final TAST stitch for the year.

The finished Crazy Quilt Journal Project  December Block includes  the previous December stitches as well as this weeks  Knotted Chain Stitch, Rick rack attached with  Couching Stitch and  a tatted Candy Cane done with Lizbeth size 20 thread.

 

This completes all 12 Crazy Quilt Blocks for the year.  I have enjoyed working on the TAST and CQJP  and adding tatting to the Blocks also.    Now I just have to decide how to put the Blocks together!

The the last week of November Take A Stitch Tuesday used the Arrow or Arrowhead Stitch.   A relaxing stitch to do.

CQJP and TAST week 44

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.

Southwest theme of this block.  This was a fun Block!

TAST and CQJP week 39

Guess I had a problem with my computer hook up as I thought this was posted but just discovered it wasn’t.  Oh well here it is.

The Take A Stitch Tuesday stitch for the last week in September was Knotted Buttonhole Stitch.  This was a new one for me and I liked it because I like Buttonhole Stitch.  This was a lot like Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch except with a knot added.

The fourth quarter of my September block for Crazy Quilt Journal Project used the Knotted Buttonhole Stitch.

TAST and CQJP week 38

The stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday week 38 was Drizzle Stitch.  I didn’t like the way the stitch stuck up when I made it so tacked the end down and than felt better about the result.

The third quarter of my September Crazy Quilt Journal Project block used the Drizzle Stitch.   I tacked the stitch down at the end so it would fit better on my block.  I also added green tatted leaves to my block.
