TAST week 9 / Devoir de broderie n° 9

Hello ! (en français plus bas)

And here is a new stitch again with the TAST : the Raised Herringbone Band. I really enjoyed doing this stitch even though it was hard to choose the good colors and threads. And to find the good balance too for the herringbone stitch. I think I'm going to do something between the different squares, but I don't know what so far. Any ideas ?

Et voici encore un nouveau point avec le TAST de cette semaine : the Raised Herringbone Band. J'ai beaucoup apprécié travailler ce point même s'il a été difficile de choisir les fils et les couleurs. Je pense ajouter quelque chose entre les différents carrés mais je ne sais pas encore quoi. Des idées ?


  1. This is a great example! I don't know if I should add extra stitches, but you could make some fancy hem stitches between the squares. You could use the red thread for the hem stitches and do the wrapping with the thread you used for the herringbone stitch.

  2. Wow, this looks great. Thanks for sharing.

  3. lovely - how about some pearls or beads in the center of the bands? Connie
