TAST Challenge Blog

Just for the heck of it I have created a blog to track my TAST challenge. I am by no means an expert. In fact I'm quite the opposite. I can do basic embroidery stitches but I have never done anything out of the ordinary.

So far I have posted about the first 15 stitches in the challenge. Some have been easy and some not. But, I will say I'm enjoying it a lot and will keep plugging along:)

I don't know if it's me but I have found some of the instructions a bit confusing. So I'm very grateful to Mary Corbet and her How-To Videos. They have been so helpful.

I was also very happy to find a great stitchery resource at Sarah's Hand Embroidery Tutorials. 

I've made little swatches with the stitches on them. Nothing too fancy or complicated. I will eventually put them into my stitch diary as a future reference. 

Anyway I'm determined to finish all 123 stitches on the TAST list.

Take care:)


  1. Great idea to have a blog where you can keep the stitches all together. It will be a great reference tool for you. I will have to sign up to follow along too. I did TAST several years ago and it was great...I learned a lot.

  2. Wow another blog! You amaze me.
    Now that's a lot of stitches, 123 wow! I never finished the first CQ class like I had hoped maybe another time.

  3. I especially like the way you have posted pictures of projects that you have used the stiches on. Very unique.

  4. Good luck! Mine are on a sampler but am doing them as Sharon posts them - not catching up with the older ones!

  5. I need to do the TAST as well. Just haven't had time been concentrating on the CQ classes.

  6. 123 stitches?! Holy smokes, who knew there were that many embroidery stitches? Off to check out the new blog, how do you keep track of them all Mary Ann? :O)

  7. I wasn't familiar with the TAST challenge. Thanks for the links and info. I'm on my way to check it out and your new blog.


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
