TAST - Weeks 14, 15 & 16


Oops. I have been very remiss in keeping up with my homework for the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge and suddenly woke up to the fact that I haven't done any for three weeks. Not good!
Being that I have a 'push' on to finish my teddy bear round robin, I decided to kill two birds with one stone (so to speak) and do the whole three stitches right onto my piece. All three are on the darkish coloured patched on the left of the picture.
Week 14 was the bonnet stitch, which I have never tried before. It's the one covering the seam between the dark patch and the one with the square crocheted doily (made by my grandmother, btw).
Week 15 was the oyster stitch. I've done that one before but keep forgetting about it. It's the 'trail' that goes through the centre of the dark patch. I did individual 'oysters' rather than joining them because I wanted to put a bead in between each one. Like that stitch, a lot!
Week 16 is the palestrina stitch. That one I had trouble with for some reason. It's the green wavy line at the top of the patch. I couldn't manage to figure out how to make the wider arms on it...have reached the conclustion I wasn't doing it right. Either way, I rather like the result, but it sure doesn't look anything like Sharon's!!
As always, thanks to SharonB for her interesting challenge stitch each week. www.inaminuteago.com/blog
