more TASTY herringbone

These pictures are part of the TAST challenge, described in Sharon's blog here.







The pink daisies sample was interesting. It started out, of course, as just 2 rows of herringbone. But as soon as I put that pink flower between them, the "cells" formed and the look totally changed.

Went to Staples today and bought a large 3 ring binder. I plan to staple a strip of cardstock to the left hand side of my fabric, punch holes in it and keep it in the binder. I'm not much for sketches - I need color and texture.

Lovely - the dainty, delicate one in the center - gold/beige - is especially beautiful.

Love all your TASTY samples. The green one (top row) looks like a zig-zagging fence! The gold one is luscious :)

Oh, wow! They are all gorgeous! I like the cell-look with the flowers in it, too, but I really love the gold leafy one!

Oh I adore the gold one! What thread did you use? All your stitches have a very elegant feel to them.

OOOHHH- I love the goldwork too! And like Helen, I thought the stitching with the purple lazy daisies looked like a fence too!

Very beautiful Lin
