Suz-TAST


I started out with a thought in mind and stitched this for TAST:





I used stem stitch to outline all the boxes, and to fill in a few.
Then I added a branch with a few leaves to contrast with the rigid squares. (okay, almost squares -it's all free hand- no lines drawn in - so it's not perfect  lol)

the leaves are detached chain stitch, and I also used a line of french knots in the lower right.


Stem stitch is one I tend to use often.


Hope you've been having fun stitching.

That's it for this week..........what with Easter House guests, I've fallen behind. Next week I hope to have my CQJP update, as well as my Chikan Embroidery. Happy stitching.

Hugs from Suz

Well, you got downright creative. You're making me look bad (giggle). I like what you have done!

giggle......I had fun. Couldn't make you look bad if I tried!

Suztats said...

Yes, it was! Took quite a while, though......

Debra Spincic said...

It is said that change s as good as a rest. Your stitching reminds me of one of those glass mobiles which can be hung in a window to catch the light.

Love the little boxes and the way you've used the stem stitch!

What a fun modern piece. The little vine is a nice contrast to the angles in the squares.

The blocky background makes me think of Mondrian. :)
I like the way you used a stem stitch vine to contrast with the blocky angles. Now it makes me think of a Japanese garden trellis. :)

Aha... You went abstract for this one. I like abstract very much, and I love your piece.
Nice design quality happening here. Great work Suz.

I really like that! It didn't occur to me to do something so creative.

Suztats said...

Thank you, Cy! I'm beaming.
