TAST Week 7 – Details 173 to 175 February 23rd, 2007

overlaid feather stitchthis morning I was thinking about the different shapes that Fly Stitch can form.

visual journal 23 febuary

which led me to think that Feather stitch can make the same shapes and that I had never tried feather stitch with wide shallow V’s…when I drew it in the visual journal it looked so like Cretan Stitch I lost interest and started doodling other lines in which I saw a different pattern emerge when 2 rows were overlaid with the needle going down at the same point as the first row but coming up slightly above where it came up for the first row and this seam treatment is the result…

I think that I really like this one because I did it on a second seam. Done with a thicker thread and different spaceing this one looks more like my drawing…

and then I did it on a third seam, for this one I used a stranded thread and trimmed it with beads.
