TAST 2012 Chevron Stitch

While at the initial stage of embroidery learning, I was very keen on trying out new stitches, thus learned some basic stitches, but after starting projects, just started relying on same stitches.

Whenever I refer a stitch guide, I always get confused, which stitch should do first ??, which is beautiful? which is easy ?? like that, but now after participating in TAST, I started learning each new stitch in a week which is a great feeling, and of course not only learning a stitch but also a variety of experiments that is a range of creativity can also be seen.

So this weeks TAST is Chevron stitch, a totally new stitch for me, but lemme say proudly I learned it and even prepared a tutorial of the same.

Inspired by other talented people ‘s work, I also did a trial with Chevron stitch, which is an utter flop Sad smile

see the out come..

I tried to decorate it with kundan stones , but ….. what is the problem with this ???? is it the colour of stone ??? or the design itself ????

anyway I ll come out with more trials ..Smile

I find it amusing that the first thing I thought when I saw the picture, before reading was: "I like that with the drop beads!" and then got to where you think it's a flop... :) I think part of the issue with what you're seeing as a problem may be scale of bead, rather than color. If the stone was slightly smaller it might balance the stitch better. :)

I also am enjoying TAST and learning new stitches. When I viewed your trial I thought it would be nice as a crown or border.

Raji,
You can increase the size of the stitch and space it out a little more - it'll look good :)
