“BORING!”, was my first thought when I saw this week’s stitch for TAST was Turkman stitch. I was wrong. Whenever a new TAST stitch is released, I google. Then I head for Constance Howard’s Book of Stitches, which I mentioned yesterday. The Book of…

Three years ago I put this little 8 inch bunny embroidery up for sale on Spoonflower, but I’ve only just gotten around to stitching it. Inspired by the TAST embroidery challenge, I’ve used an assortment of stitches including buttonhole wheels, berry…
