So I've been working on learning more stitches by taking part in the TAST 2012 over at pintangle.  I joined late, so I'm playing catch-up each week by doing the current week and a previous one at the same time.  Instead of making samplers, I decided to learn by stitching up an embroidered diary entry each week to incorporate that week's TAST stitch.  Two finished and I'm about to start my third in the next couple of days.

I wanted to upload pics here, but my photos all turned out to be HUGE (4MB in some cases), so I hope you don't mind if I just post a couple on here and add links to my tumblr, where there's more detail?

Here's my entry for week ending 1st April 2012, which incorporated stitches for TAST weeks 2 and 14.  It also includes shisha, beads and a variety of other stitches.

And here's the most recently finished piece for TAST weeks 3 and 15

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

First off, your stitching is so great and second, an embroidery diary-I am in serious heaven right now. That is so brilliant!
