Thank you Suztat for this hint
I made two more which I like better because the colours are bright. The ones above are
made of very old patchwork fabrics with thousand million little flowers on them.
Only grannies are working with them now-a-days.... by the way - I am one, too, using
up material which was bought in the first enthusiastic patchwork times
Rummaging in my travel box which is always with me I found gauze and
suddenly remembered the lace making - as I learnt it with Karen Ruane -
I might cut out the circles and "leaves" and use them on my actual stitch cloth.
where I intend to document many TAST stitches and others - just
as they come into my mind. I found a site -----click
(http://www.embroidery.rocksea.org/stitch/palestrina/triple-palestrina-stitch/ ---- )
where the stitches are explained so very clearly - here the Palestrina stitch
I will show the result in the next post
It is all hand-sewn - first pressed over a square cardboard template and then joined
(as shown by Jude Hill)
for three types of Palestrina stitches (soon coming)
