Caught up on TAST

Over the weekend I made a sampler book to put in my embroidery samples from TAST. I am able to put in nine samples to a page. My samples are on little green squares of wool that I hand wove on a vintage Weave-it loom. I only have 20 squares woven at the moment, but I will weave more as I need them or as I get a chance, whichever comes first.

The sampler green pages are hand stitched into the book. This can be done before or after you have embroidered on them. I stitched them in first so I could get the placement right; mine overlap a little . Mine are only sewn in on the top so it is easy to access the back while embroidering. If you want to sew it down on all sides, I suggest embroidering the sample first, then attaching it to the book. My husband hates the green color, but it is something I already had made, and it is just for samples anyway. Plus I think it is nice to have a bright color. I think it is rather eye catching myself. If you notice in the picture, I placed floss bobbins as my tag to state what the item is. On the second one it tells what stitch it is on the back side of the tag. If you want, you could embroider on the space below the square sample. But that is too permanent for me in case I want to change this later.

I also did a row sampler; one row for each week. This I did on the perforated paper.

I have completed week one and week two, so I am back on track and ready for week three.

Week 1
Herringbone
Week 2
blanket stitch ( buttonhole?)
