Web Secrets – TAST 37

stronger than Kevlar

This week’s TAST stitch is the Pistil stitch – and it reminded me of……..

a spider’s web –  so I stitched this little piece using the pistil stitch for every part – the twigs and little buds too…..

Real spider’s webs are incredible, and amazing –  and  spiders, capable of such astounding chemical and scientific processes, did not evolve from slime …any more than my stitching did.
They were created and designed :)

Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. Psalm 75:1

the Pistil Stitch is one of many stitches I have learned by participating in the Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge, hosted by sharon b. at pintangle  It is great for all levels of embroiderers, even beginners (like me )! So come along!

and thank you for visiting!

Hooray! got the early jump on the lovely Basque Stitch for this week, and am so excited I actually stitched…a peacock!  I am progressing :)  This stitch seemed hard, but after practicing, I really liked working it.  This is part of  Take a stitch Tuesday; you can find all the details, and even how to do the stitches, here at Sharon’s’ pintangle

come and join along!  newbies are welcome! (like me – I was certainly welcomed!!)

Palestrina knot for TAST week 26

The Palestrina knot took me many tries to figure out…but once I kept at it, it is a favorite now. In these soft pearl cottons, it looks like frosting (doesn’t really convey the frosting look in the photos…)
I enjoyed it so much, I added it to another project I am working on:

the cherry color, and the gingerbread color look like frosting (to me).

And….I have been catching up with TAST!  here are my beginner workings of weeks 1 – 12 :
