February Quilt

This is my submission for my February Block.
I have used the TAST stitches for February and some from January. 
As we have more stitches I will create more seams to fill.

Not a lot of time this week I did manage a selection using a variety of threads.
Not thought of using this stitch before.

Tast week 9 Couching

Couching week 9

Still having so much fun.

The writing was harder than I imagined needs more practice. For the fancy fluffy yarn I used  the basic couching stitch as I wanted to keep its fluffiness.
I have used several of the previous stitches for couching down different yarns and string.

 The top piece is just a mixture of threads that I have found in my mothers sewing box. I have unravelled a fare amount but this was just a bit to far gone. I have then couched using detached chain stitch.

I used a piece of wool and some gold thread not sure which is best to lay the tread on top or close together, the u needs to be neater. The yellow is an off cut of sponge matting.  For a first attempt I am happy with it
