TAST - fly stitch

First rows of pink fly stitch were simple, only to let my hands to learn how to move. then I twisted them and change color - green. I love this wavy effect.

Two rows of same stitch in opposite direction and different color. It looks like chain.
Then I wanted to try to make stitches very close and I use for it cotton yarn, that has different shadows of violet color.
Even more close stitches...
Again green. And red, it is great accent.

TAST - feather stitch

Another week, another stitch from Sharon and her Take a Stitch Tuesday.
I was familiar with this stitch already because last year I finished big textile thing called Big Ben where I used a lot of this stitch. Big Ben is made on black silk with batting because I really love that plastic efect you can achieve.
Sampler for this week is again on silk, dyed in yellow and red. This piece of silk was made several ago by my younger son. Again I used batting. I wanted to make something like flowers but in non natural colours. It still looks unfinished, it needs some accent. Probably something brown or dark green... donot know at the moment.

TAST - chevron stitch

TAST - chevron stitch
Originally uploaded by imichalova1.
I embroidered chevron stitch with green thin cotton thread but it seams to me a little boring, so I added some more stitches in orange thread, it is a bit thicker.
In last row I divided this stitch and made separately skew stitches and horizontal stitches.
