Judy ~ Basque Stitch TAST

This has been another crazy week with not much stitching accomplished, at least by me. I did, however, manage to trim Sue's dress with the Basque Stitch which was a kind of fun one. Since I am now plumb out of edges, sleeves and hatbands that need embellishment, I sure hope the next stitch is something entirely different. Be careful what you wish for, right?

Very pretty and delicate - looks perfect in blue. Yes, let's all be careful what we wish for!

I like it in the blue. Makes a very nice scallop edge. Bet Sue looks all pretty.

Yes, careful what you wish for. I wished for sun, and now I need to hand-water my container gardens. I wished for rain, and got awakened by a thunderstorm right overhead so violent that it sounded like the civil war!
Beautiful use of Basque stitch on the scallops of SBS dress! I like the way you made three Basque loops on two of the scallops and lots on the other two.

Plumb pretty, I tell you!

This is a pretty stitch and Sue is probably the best dressed girl I know.

This is a great use for this stitch. Nice job.

Your use of Basque stitch gives a lovely lacy/frilly edge to Sues dress.
Nicely worked Judy.
Now, if we get a 'humdinger' of a TAST stitch this week we know who to blame, haha.

Very nice scallops, especially with the variation in number of loops and the pretty little purple flowers.

I started out doing multiple loops but couldn't figure out how to keep them from crossing on the second scallop, so that's why it ended up the way it did. Chance! Hope to get caught up on everyone's work. We went to Spokane to see some sun and just got back home where it's still cloudy. And chilly.

That was the perfect stitch for trim. When you started, I wasn't sure how this was going to work out, as I may have mentioned before, but I've been so impressed with the creativity you've shown in using the stitches!

Thanks, Susan. This next one is going to be a challenge!
