TAST Week 14: Satin Stitch

 I chose to demonstrate the use of Satin Stitch by adding a group of bargello variations to my evenweave stitch sampler.  They are taken from Margaret Boyles' book Bargello: An Explosion in Color.  The fiber and color selections are my own.  These complete my stitch sampler.  I am rather pleased with the result.  

I have also been using decorative stitches based on satin stitch on Menagerie, the progressive canvas piece that Cyberpointers is working on this year.  A sample is shown below.  For those who are seeing it for the first time, I am using a bag of red, white and blue threads as the basis for this design on 18 count brown canvas.
