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.

TAST 34 (&33)

Week 34 of Take A Stitch Tuesday, is the Linked Double Chain Stitch …a combination of chain stitch and twisted chain stitch……….

 start with two chain stitches, then a twisted chain at the bottom……….

this is the first time embroidering this stitch,  and it reminded me of

…the little paw pads on rabbit’s paws. :)

          I did a row of Pekinese stitch (week 33) as well to catch up .

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day. 
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; 
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal2 corinthians 4:16-18

..God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those those who think they are wise.  And He chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful……so that no man can ever boast in the presence of God.
