Work in progress

This is my Jan. crazy quilt block.  Funny, now that I am looking at the photo of it, I am not as happy with it.  It needs a little more work.  Sometimes I wonder if anything is ever truly finished!

TAST raised Herringbone

Okay, well it is my version of that stitch.  I did not do the padding/satin stitch.  To me it just looked heavy and I didn't want that.  I am sure that it will look good on other stitching.  I struggle with getting the herringbone even.  This is about the closest that I have ever got!  It helped to have the regular pattern in the fabric to use as a guide.  I do like this stitch.
Sharon has great instructions athttp://pintangle.com/

For some strange reason this didn't post yesterday!  Weird.
