Work finished

I don't think I'll post a work every week for the Wednesday work in progress, but of course I am allways doing something( but not allways I can finish). I finally received the purse frames. Here is my work finished. Now I can do so many purses! I'm selling them on my Elo7 store.

TAST week 17

The TAST week 17 stitch is weathear stitch. I stitched mine with a hand dyed thread on my Aida sampler. I didn't know the stitch and I find it will be very useful for my crazy quilts.

This Tast week 16 stitch is French knot. I was finishing my pebble adding many of these. It is a good stitch to fill these spaces.

And  after adding all that french knots and beads.

Hand dyed threads

This week my friend Anne from Canada sent me a tutorial from Pamela Kellogg's blog teaching how to hand dye silk ribbon. I found it so nice because it is very simple. Sharon Boggon also left a post telling how she does her dyeing on Pintangle and a post about how to skeining threads to dye.
 I had  already watched a video about how to hand dye yarn. It is a very good video.

After all I decided to try what I 'd learned. I decide to dye some floss. and here are my results:

After dyeing and dry the threads on the line I had a little work organizing. After all the work  done:

    If you have a hand dye tip, or a link to share please leave your comment.

TAST week 12

The stitch for this week is barred chain and alternating barred chain.
I found it very useful for vines, seams, very good to add beads and little flowers.
I have made it on my Aida sampler.

 I was updating my Aida sampler and want to show you my buttonhole stitches from week 2
This is one of the most useful stitches.

 And my sampler is getting longer...

Satin ribbon and a seam

This week I've tried some satin ribbon because in my country we don't have silk ribbons . These satin ribbons have beautiful colors and brigthness that I wanted to try. I did these spider roses .
After I did this seam using chevron and cast on stitch. I didn't finish yet.

TAST week 11 and my pebble

The last two weeks I have been doing my pebble. As all the girls said it is addictive! I couldn't even stop to do the running stitch, the TAST week 10 stitch. But I'm lucky because the week 11 stitch is whipped wheel and I was just finishing mine when Sharon announced it! Take a look:

And this is my unfinished pebble.  There is a lot of work to do !!!!

Today I updated my Aida sampler. I did some more wheels
