The last two weeks of Tast have been detached chain and running chain stitches. I have combined these on a fabric page I have called "Splash". There have been so many wonderful examples worked once again for this weeks Tast but I think my favourite of all is one stitched by Luiz called Good morning Maharani. Click on the link and have a look at his wonderful and creative stitching. Also hop over to Sharons Pintangle and read more about the Tast adventure.
Some time ago I was playing with the Gimp programme and produced what are called nova circles. Then I discovered these could be printed onto linen, however, I was unable to get the placement on the linen right and ended up with two overlapping pictures on the one piece of fabric, which has languished in a box ever since.
At the time I did print one correctly on the linen and turned it into my piece I called "Carnivale"
This piece is called "Splash" I again used a variety of threads and included some gold thread in the needle. The 'scales' of the fish on the right are all detached chain, and the fish on the left is filled with running chain.
Here is a closer version as well.
The Nova circles look like bubbles to me. Below is a photo below of the original piece of linen that I printed with two overlapping designs.
For those who have not seen it here is a picture of "Carnivale" firstly the greyed picture and the completed one.
