Take A Stitch Tuesday: Couching

This week’s TAST challenge was to incorporate Couching into my 1 John 4:7 sampler.

I have utilized couching in some relatively recent projects (well, I guess it has been over a year since it was for a Silver Bella swap, but that’s relatively recently, isn’t it?), so I really tried to push myself with this technique a little. Like, couching circles, for example. This one is supposed to have a bricked effect by placing the stitches midway between the “spokes.”

Here is some “regular” couching:

And then I tried some more couched circles, this time with the stitches on the “spokes.” Oh, and some pendant couching.

More circle couching, with some zigzag couching.

And, finally, some bricking.

    I love your sampler! We sang that verse set to song when I was little, so it’s a very familiar verse. I can’t wait to see the finished project!
