The new Tast stitch is very like the last one - only on its base it is open instead of closed. I tried
different ways and variations, from the left:
The first one is quite normal - I used perle thread no. 5 -
then I added a bead - just as it came into my fingers
after that I tried to weave with two threads
and why not put more beads - I wove them in with the middle thread
finally in this photo I wove with 5 threads - and two needles were necessary
and please this disorder - I love it as long as they are my tools and threads
My final little embroidery looks like that - I found the idea for the wings of the insects in the very much admired stitching of feyfae at flickr.
Please have a look at this bushfire of feyfae - it is artistic.

I can't change anything afterwards.
Not me, although DH thinks that I am gifted for modern technology.)
