TAST 40 & 39

I have been working on a piece that includes a piece of vintage silk (specifically, a piece of lining from a vintage silk haori - a Japanese short "coat" worn over a kimono), shown here with TAST week #40's Beaded Hedebo Edge - this was a new stitch for me, and creates a pretty "ruffle" like row. The instructions for this stitch may be found here on pintangle.
The silk reminds me of  charmeuse; this is worked in pearl cotton 8, with little pearl beads......

On the same piece I have worked some patchwork of print cotton...
to which I added week #39's stitch, Knotted Buttonhole Stitch.... a new stitch for me, and I like it very much....
The stitch was worked in coton a broder, and I had already added the running stitch which you see at the top of the knotted buttonhole stitches - I like them together :)

Come and join along with TAST, you will learn new stitches, and meet others who are stitching along too - no pressure, but great opportunities for learning, creating and gathering wonderful information from experienced and gifted embroiderers!

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 corinthians 5:21
He did that for you - your part is accepting on His terms

12 years ago someone took the time to leave a tract, which I found, that explained the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
 I read it... I then looked  up all the statements in a Bible to see if it was was and is. That was exactly when life began - when I confessed my sins to God, turned from them, to Him, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour - because He paid for all my sins - I could never pay, nor can anyone else - He did it all.  He alone is Saviour.


  1. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. It is so great to read a comment that ends in "to God be the glory".

    I hope my embroidery shows how beautiful God's world is.

    Blessings in Christ,

  3. Your beaded hedebo edge stitches are looking good. Didn't you find working on vintage kimono silk hard? It is often stiff and tightly woven.

    1. thank you Queenie! I have since updated the explanation to be more precise; this is a piece of silk lining I removed from a haori; this piece reminds me of charmeuse - so it is much more supple than the silk work outside on a kimono :)

  4. your beaded Hebedo edge looks very well on the vintage kimono silk

  5. nice to see your work!i made mine just today..a simple bracelet..
