TAST 40 & 39

I have been working on a piece that includes a piece of vintage silk (specifically, a piece of lining from a vintage silk haori – a Japanese short “coat” worn over a kimono), shown here with TAST week #40’s Beaded Hedebo Edge – this was a new stitch for me, and creates a pretty “ruffle” like row. The instructions for this stitch may be found here on pintangle.

The silk reminds me of  charmeuse; this is worked in pearl cotton 8, with little pearl beads……

On the same piece I have worked some patchwork of print cotton…

to which I added week #39’s stitch, Knotted Buttonhole Stitch…. a new stitch for me, and I like it very much….

The stitch was worked in coton a broder, and I had already added the running stitch which you see at the top of the knotted buttonhole stitches – I like them together :)

Come and join along with TAST, you will learn new stitches, and meet others who are stitching along too – no pressure, but great opportunities for learning, creating and gathering wonderful information from experienced and gifted embroiderers!

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 corinthians 5:21
He did that for you – your part is accepting on His terms


12 years ago someone took the time to leave a tract, which I found, that explained the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
 I read it… I then looked  up all the statements in a Bible to see if it was true….it was and is. That was exactly when life began – when I confessed my sins to God, turned from them, to Him, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour – because He paid for all my sins – I could never pay, nor can anyone else – He did it all.  He alone is Saviour.

  1. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. It is so great to read a comment that ends in “to God be the glory”.

    I hope my embroidery shows how beautiful God's world is.

    Blessings in Christ,

    Valerie

  2. thank you Queenie! I have since updated the explanation to be more precise; this is a piece of silk lining I removed from a haori; this piece reminds me of charmeuse – so it is much more supple than the silk work outside on a kimono :)

  3. very nice stitching, and also thank you for your Bible quotes.
    I was sure I was following you but nothing has come through for ages so have rejoined your band of followers, don`t know where I went but I am back
