TAST II #12,13,14

TAST II # 12 Sorbello: This stitch is like a cross stitch with a knot in the center. I tested with two single stitches, a grid, variation in length and width (wave) and yarn in a larger stitch. Lots to work with here!TAST II # 13 Raised Cup: Examples: yellow-orange is cord with 3 small beads in the center, yellow is soft heavy embroidery thread with a little pink angelina in the center, the blue is a woven variegated hand-dyed ribbon and the purple is a wool thread with a center french knot.
TAST II # 14 Herringbone Buttonhole: easy to do and makes a raised texture.

And, for the good news ... I'm up to date with the TAST II challenge!

I didn't realize there were so many different embroidery stitches! I can imagine them featured on the velvet and satins of a crazy quilt! Got any plans?
