Z is for .........

Zip! of course 
a fitting ending tag for my alphabet of stitch tags
in 'Zig Zag' chain stitch
and that zips it up for me!
 I have had so much going on over the last week that I haven't had any time to decide on how I'm going to display my stitch tags, I did lay them out on a canvas
It's not a good day here for taking photographs, a bit dull and rainy, but this is just to give an idea of how they might look, the background fabric is a pale, mint green. I think I might need a bigger canvas, I think they look a bit too close together, I may still go for the book idea, my thoughts on this being that I could carry it in my project bag and use it as reference and a reminder of all those other lovely stitches that I should use more often in my projects.
I have really enjoyed working on the A-Z theme with stitches, some more difficult and time consuming than others but it's been fun. Im really not sure right now if I'm going to continue with Tag Tuesday it's really so difficult to decide, I enjoy joining in but it is a commitment and I dont want to say yes and then find it difficult to keep up with so many other projects on the go. On the other hand I know there is a waiting list and I feel perhaps it's time to let someone else take part.

  1. Ohh, I would miss your work terribly if you decided not to continue! :( but you must do what is right for you of course Yvonne *hugs*
    Your collection is amazing to look back on and would make a beautiful display but I do agree with you about a book being a portable reference for you. And of course easy for others to admire too ;) Your Z for Zip is as wonderful as all of your other tags and the Zig-Zag stitch is the perfect stitch for it. :0) Mo xx

  3. Your tag is lovely and they all look so well together. I love the idea of a book, but I am biased as I love making little books:)

  15. Another beautiful stitched tag, I have really enjoyed your series of stitches and learned some new ones, thank you. When you first mentioned framing your tags, I imagined a very long, narrow frame with the tags placed side by side. This would definitely not be very convenient to keep in your bag! I love the book idea, especially as you inspired me to ditch the framed idea and do a book. I hope you don't leave Tag Tuesday; I felt just the same about giving someone else a chance to join - and I have now decided to join in every now and again if there's a theme that really takes my fancy. Hopefully that'll let me catch up on a few projects I've been putting off! I'm looking forward to doing some sewing, it'll be lovely to see more of yours too, Jane xx
