TAST – Couching

So this week’s TAST was couching.

This is a stitch or group of stitches that is so versatile that I was at a loss what to do. You can couch almost anything using almost any stitch.

What I did here is probably better called laid work. Or nue is done the same way just with gold thread and silk. If you use different colours and patterns for the couching stitches it is called new england laid work.

-the next one shows – from left to right – oriental couching, bokhara couching and figure stitch.

Sorry I had no time to be more verbose today.
