CQJP and TAST week 51 December 2012


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 third quarter of my December Block Crazy Quilt Journal Project was done with the knotted Chain Stitch as well as

Buttonhole Stitch.





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!


This week the stitch was Stem stitch also known as Crewel stitch, Stalk stitch, and South Kensington stitch.





On the second quarter of my block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project I added stem stitch to the rick rack from the week before.  I also added a tatted piece to this quarter.



I was a little slow posting as we continue to prepare to leave Yuma, AZ.

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.
