Algerian Eye Stitch
Here is my TAST challenge this week using the Algerian Eye Stitch. I painted some Aida with jade green acrylic paint. I do seem to make things difficult for myself. The paint made the holes almost impossible to see, then I roughly cut around it irregularly. The yarn used is varied and hand dyed on a course with Ruth Issett.
This is a detail of the piece. I joined the stitched Aida to a piece of felt using the embellisher, blending it in with some purple satin and stitching some more Algerian eyelets in purple cotton on the joint.
