TAST Algerian Eye Stitch


My goal for my own practice of TAST is to apply each stitch to some aspect of landscape embroidery. At the risk of sounding demoralizingly precious....for my Algerian Eye Stitch TAST I created a starscape. What an obvious use for that stitch.
It was fun using different sequins with the stitch, and different weights of threads. I also really enjoyed embroidering on black fabric.
This is just a sampler and nowhere near a finished piece...but the idea could be developed with more time, for sure.

I guess I like demoralizingly precious. =) That's a wonderful starscape. I look forward to seeing what it becomes sometime.
