Not an Olympic cycling event, but my own pursuit - trying to catch up my TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) project.  I only ever had modest ambitions - to make a sample stitch each week on fabric pages that I'd made - but I'm failing to even keep up with that!

At week 30 I'm 13 weeks behind, and my pages look like this.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to learn the stitches that I don't know, produce samples of them, write and backstitch all the labels, and actually catch up with the rest of the group by the end of the summer.  So, just two or three small samples to stitch every week, having put just about everything else to the side, what with it being the summer hols and other calls on my time being made by my two delightful (mostly) small people.  It should be do-able, so check back in September to see if it was or not!

(I'm just a bit concerned that Barred Chain Stitch might be impossible for me - however often I look at the diagrams or photos I just can't seem to make my needle and thread produce something that looks right!  Wish me luck with that stitch in particular, please.).


  1. Enjoy the hols, my girls don't need me at all now, and while it's lovely being left o my own devices, I miss being part of their summer!

  2. Good luck! I fell at the first post as far as TAST2012 was concerned, still enjoying seeing what others create though.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
