TAST 2012 is Take A Stitch Tuesday and starts on January 3, 2012. It is run by sharon b, an incredibly talented and generous Aussie gal from her blog, pintangle. This is not the first TAST. I think there were 2 earlier ones. Anyway... the challenge is: every Tuesday, sharon b posts an embroidery stitch on her blog and the participants practice the stitch and experiment with it. Of course, there's a place to post pics of our work in addition to one's own blog as not everyone who participates has a blog. So, if you are so inclined, or even if you are just curious to learn more, amble on over to sharon b here at pintangle where you can read all about it.
And I will take this opportunity to wish you all the very best of holidays and a 2012 filled with gorgeous threads and textiles and stitches and... whatever else makes your heart sing.
