Hi Susan and anyone else wondering what you should be doing....
It's totally up to you... make a sampler.... make a stitchery ... use the stitch within a new project .... or an old. The whole idea is to try out all of the stitches as they are posted and that wya you will expand on stitches you know and learn new stitches giving you a wider selection for any future projects.... but most importantly enjoy yourself while stitching

I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I haven't really investigated how this wonderful "stitchin fingers" site works or how previous TAST stitchers participated. I've never been part of a challenge or a group in which people send monthly cards of themed pieces. I really don't know how they work. I'm actually new to trading too. The first time I ever traded with anyone was after setting up CYBER FYBER. I know that might sound strange, but it's true. The first ATCs I ever made were the 130 for round one of CYBER FYBER. At the time, I only owned one ATC, a gift from a friend. Still, I spent many, many nights last year reading wonderful posts about TAST. I only found fiber blogs and blog rings well after the TAST challenge had started. Often, I wished I had had the opportunity to participate. I guess I'm getting in on this chance right under the wire. While I don't understand the way the site operates or the expectations, I really don't want to miss the chance to do this wonderful program. So, please consider me a member. If I do something stupid, please let me know. I'm asking for technical help right now....but otherwise, I'm going to look up the herringbone stitch. Thank you, Cinzia, for starting this thread and giving someone like me a second chance to learn all those stitches I never knew existed. Please let me know what I'm suppose to be doing with this herringbone stitch.
PS I'm really

I'll continue to by CYBER FYBER for this though.

Ladies...I just got an old copy of the wonderful Australian embroidery magazine - Inspirations Magazine - issue 13 (they are up to issue 58 now). In this issue they had used mattress / pillow striped ticking to make a stitch sampler and then had turned it into a clutch type bag! Ironically, I had just bought some of this very same ticking to use for my strip sampler for this group!
What a clever way to use the sampler in this fashion. I've decided that I'm going to improvise the idea a little and make a needle case / hussif with my "sampler". That way my stitch samples will always be closeby and it's still a useful item. Thought that I'd share the idea with all of you.

I want to stitch "Herringbone" on a handfelted bracelet, thanks for inspiration...greetings, Marion

Just joined the group. I am so looking forward to this. Was lying on bed thinking about how I would do the stitches. I think that I will use them to decorate some pillows to begin with.

I decided not to make one big project containing all the stitches, but to make every week at least one small item. The majority of my mini-projects will be cards, because I like to send self-made cards. It also means that I will try to make a figurative piece of embroidery, not a sampler with rows of stitches.

Hi everyone, Mara in Beijing here. I only "discovered" Sharon half way through last year, so I didn't do TAST. I did take PLOS in November and would dearly love to find time for other classes....but maybe TAST 2008 is the thing for me! Cheers, Mara

not sure, maybe fabric book, will just keep loose at the moment and see what develops.

I want to keep my samples in a binder in covers (the things where you keep your overhead transparency's) To fit in there they have to be about 20 by 24 cm.
I also would like to put a binding around it to finish it.
This will give me the possibility to improve my skills on mitred corners ;-)

Three days to go .. have you decided on your format yet?
I am trying a sampler 10cm by 1m and also a few ATCs .. for when I feel very adventurous .. or have time to spare.
