This week’s TAST challenge: Satin Stitch. (And, by the way, I’ve tried about a dozen times to link to Pintangle right here like I always do, but it won’t link. Plus, I just remembered that all of the links on my other TAST challenges will have to be fixed because they are now dead since Pintangle has a new site. ANYway…moving on.) [Edit: Yea! I got the link to TAST to work.]
First, I did a padded Satin Stitch in variegated gold. I really liked the way the variegation came through.
Then, I did Long and Short Satin Stitch and I was pleased with the variegation on this word, too.
Next, I used a Satin Stitch to differentiate components on this font.
Fianlly, I used a Satin Stitch with variegated thread, again. This time, I’m not so much digging the way the variegation came out. Since I never really plan ahead on this project (as in, I always just quickly sketch in the letters and then grab the thread as I go along), I’m always surprised at how it turns out. Most of the time, I’m happily surprised. Sometimes, not as much.
Progress so far:
