TAST 2007 - cable chain, thorn, pekinese, pistil, seeding

Still catching up!

I saw this Icicle Doll Swap and of course I immediately wanted to make one, but I wanted to catch up with TAST too. The answer was obvious, icicle dolls embellished with TAST stitches.

I haven't joined the swap, but I've started on these three:

The green one with the head on has knotted cable chain, thorn, pekinese and pistil stitches along with some seeding for texture. The white ones have pekinese and pistil stitches and seeding.

I feel much better now! It was so nice to sit and do some hand sewing just because I felt like it!

I've finished two of them now:

I keep forgetting to give sizes. The 'bodies' of these measure about 7 inches or 17.5cm.
