The first week of TAST 2012 began with the Fly stitch. The format of my sampler had already been decided. What I thought about at the beginning of this new project was what my goals really were. I decided on these 4 main goals that are:
1. Learn new stitches
2. Be exposed to and think about creative ways of using these new stitches.
3. Design CQ seam treatments
4. Learn how to copy, transfer and mark my designs on the fabric.
It is interesting that I would be starting on a striped cotton which was not AIDA cloth. My striped cotton would not have the grid quality that is so useful although the stripes would be helpful. This means that I would have to mark the fabric to try to get somewhat even stitches and to translate the idea onto the fabric. This is something that I will need to get much better at.
Here is my version of the Fly Stitch.
