TAST wk 1: Fly Stitch

For my Fly Stitch exploration, I worked on a crazy quilt fabric postcard. I played around with varying the length of each of the three legs, and with the angles of the legs. I played a little with spacing and overlapping... and then after snapping this photo, I put it down somewhere and forgot where I put it. Argh!! I'd like to do more work on it, but I may just have to wait until it resurfaces again. I'm sure it's somewhere reasonable. I probably set it down when I went to change my laundry over and now it's buried under the socks. Or maybe I had it in my hand when the phone rang and now it's hiding behind the notepad. It'll show up when it shows up. .. or maybe the house gremlins hid it from me. That happens too, you know.

    It will be where all the other things have hidden themselves. It's always a surprise when they resurface. I like the way you have explored this stitch, pretty colours, I look forward to seeing it again with another stitch.

    I hope you find it again, if only to pin it up to look at. I especially love the yellow fly's on turquoise, it makes a very cool border!

    Very nice work, I can relate to your little problem. It seems I spend far to much time hunting for things. :)


    Sorry for the deleat,made a few typos.

    I lost mine, too! I found it attached to my bottom! LOL I'd had it on the arm of the chair, and apparently had swept it off when sitting down. I like your examples. Very nice.

    Oh, Susan! I have done that more times than I can count! I'm just glad it didn't attach itself to your seat with a forgotten needle!

    Thanks so much for the daisy stitch suggestions; I'd been wondering if 3 strands instead of my normal 2 would help. Love your peacock...also the soup saga! BTW where in the PNW are you? Might we be neighbors?!?

    Your fly stitch work is great! I didn't get started this week due to being out of town for the holidays and cannot wait to get home and start!
