TAST herringbone

First of all, I think we need to change Take-a-Stitch-Tuesday to Take a Stitch Tuesday, You, so our acronym can be TASTY!

This message is in reference to Sharon's TAST challenge, mentioned in her blog here.

Anyway, here are a couple of my seams. The first row is interesting in that the weaving of the lighter pink thread is a little different. I like how it looks all loopy on the right end, but if you don't tack it down like I did on the left, the loops don't really stay well.

I don't know if what I want to get out of this is the same as the rest of you, but here's what I envision: I'd like a "book" of the stitch - with various ideas on how to embellish a seam using this stitch. That way, when I want an idea for some project I'm working on, I can just look through my book for ideas. I'm so glad we're doing this during the holidays, when I have the time to do it. Happy Herringboning!

That's a great idea for a book - but how in the world would one ever capture all the wonderful examples and ideas - like yours!

I love the top example! That was so creative of you to hold the loop down with that stitching. It's great! I like the bottom one, too.

I'm just going to photgraph all my seams and print the out, then put them in a booklet.
